N.B. when interpreting population figures by religion please note:

Any person not claiming to belong to one of the 5 recognized religions (Muslim, Protestant, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist) is classified as Muslim. This inflates the actual Muslim population in many areas with an indigenous population that has not been assimilated, i.e. Seram, Tanimbar and Buru.
