Muslim Population in the US

According to a study by the Pew Research Corporation, the Muslim population is constantly growing. In the next 20 years, Muslims may become the second largest religious group in the United States. (CNN)

However, this is not a complete story.
The Pew Research Center merged their 2007, 2011, and 2017 studies with the annual data from the US Census (which does not follow religious beliefs) into a portrait of the future of American Muslims.
According to their data, the Muslim population is accelerating and will increase from about 3.45 million in 2017 to about 8.1 million in 2050. At the same time, Muslims are expected to surpass the Jews and become the second largest religious group.

For Example

  • By 2020, the estimated Christian population will reach 252,970,000 people - almost 70 times the estimated Muslim population.
  • By 2050, the Christian population is expected to reach 261,960,000 people - a substantial increase in the number, but as a result of the growth of other religious groups, the percentage of the population has declined.

Even so, even the second largest religious group, Muslims still account for only 2.1% of the population.

  • In 2020, 62.31 million Americans are expected to be non-partisan.
  • By 2050, this figure is expected to increase to 100.86 million.
  • So, in short, as more and more Muslims build their homes and families here, the U.S. Muslim population is expected to increase substantially in the United States.
  • But even if the population soars, Christianity is also the main religious group in the United States, followed by those who do not recognize religion at all.
