*Data for some countries come primarily from general population surveys which are less reliable than censuses or large-scale demographic and health surveys for estimating minority-majority ratios (seeMethodology). As a result the percentage of the population that is Muslim in these three countries is rounded to the nearest integer. The only exception to this rule is the display of Turkey’s percentage of world population as 4.7% rather than ~5%.”” indicates that the number of Muslims is too small to be reliably estimated.
