This survey was also given in both 2005 and 2012 in some countries including Japan, France, the Czech Republic, and the US. In all four countries the percentage of people identifying as atheists has risen: 8%, 15%, 10%, and 4% respectively. In a reverse trend, the percentage of atheists has dropped in Malaysia and Bosnia (-4% and -5% respectively). In fact, in 2012 in the increasingly conservative Muslim country of Malaysia, zero respondents reported being atheists.
