By means of statistical analysis, this article aims to provide the reader with a general view of the evolutions and tendencies registered in the structure of the Romanian confessional system, over an extended period of time (1859–2011). According to the 1992, 2002 and 2011 census data, the Orthodox Church continues to be the dominant Church in Romania. However, there is also a tendency towards diversification of religious preferences among the population, in consensus with the general influences of secularisation and globalisation.
Keywords: confessional affiliation, religious congregations, religions, sects, religious associations.
