I realize this would be difficult and you were mostly going by what people put down, but I think to be really useful and interesting the list would need to be condensed and consolidated a bit.  For example, it does not make sense to list "Presbyterian," "Protestant," and "Christian" separately given that Presbyterianism is a subset of Protestantism which in turn is a subset of Christianity.  And "Serbian Orthodox" and "Russian Orthodox" are hardly separate religions.   Personally I would recommend using categories for "Anglican," "Roman Catholic," "Eastern Orthodox," and "Oriental Orthodox" while including all other Christians under "Protestant."

Put only Trinitarians under 'protestant' right?

As an Eastern (non-Roman) Catholic in obedience to the Pope of Rome, I would like to suggest at least one other category.

I'll probably just use "Catholic" as the category, and implement Theodore's recommended changes by mentioning the totals.

And then you offend Anglo-Catholics and Eastern Orthodox who also claim the Catholic name.

Anglo-Catholics are listed under Anglican/Episcopalian as they are not a separate denomination. The Eastern Orthodox are listed separately from the Catholics as per the common references, in which they are listed as a separate branch of Christianity.

When Theodore said 'condensed', I thought you would siply list totals of the main categories. Then there would have been a problem. As it is, there is none.

No. John Wesley was, but they split after his death. Indeed, his original 'Rules for Methodists' prohibited Methodist meetings during the time of Divine Service in the local Anglican Parish, since he expected his followers to be faithful Anglicans. The actual break began before his death when he 'set aside' Coke and Asbury as 'bishops'. His brother Charles, remaining an orthodox Anglican, wrote a line or two of doggerel in which he asked, 'Wesley his hands on Coke hath laid. Who laid hands on him?'

New version looks pretty good KYM, except as Jovan has pointed out Methodists are not Anglicans and need to be listed with other Protestants.   Thanks.

Unspecified Protestants should be considered "Other Protestant."  Christians not known to be Catholic, Orthodox, or Anglican can be assumed to belong to this category.  This is how I'd re-revise it:
