Muslim Populations in the America’s


The Americas are the lands of the Western hemisphere consisting of the continents of North America and South America with their associated islands and regions including 35 independent countries. The Americas cover 8.3% of the Earth’s total surface area (28.4% of its land area) and contain about 14% of the population.

South America has an area of 17,840,000 sq kilometer (6,890,000 sq mi), or almost 3.5% of the Earth’s surface. In 2005, its population was estimated at more than 371,000,000.

North America’s population was estimated at over 518,575,000 in early 2009 which includes Central America. (The USA and Canada population is around 340,699,331.) It is unclear just how many Muslims are represented in the America’s and estimates vary considerably. Canada is thought to have 2% Muslim population out of a total of 33,487,208 and the USA is about 1% of a total of 307,212,123.
