Panama - Religions
Although Roman Catholicism is recognized by the constitution of 1972 as the majority religion, the constitution also guarantees religious freedom, as well as separation of church and state. In 1998, an estimated 82% of the people were Roman Catholic; 10% were evangelicals; and 3% were unaffiliated with any religious group. There were small groups of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons), Seventh-Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Episcopalians, and other Christians. Buddhists, Jews, Muslims, and Baha'is also had small communities. Panama is home to one of the world's seven Baha'i Houses of Worship.
