The Muslim share of Europe’s total population has been increasing steadily.In recent decades, the Muslim share of the population throughout Europe grew about 1 percentage point a decade, from 4% in 1990 to 6% in 2010.However, the majority of respondents in the UK, Germany, France, Sweden and the Netherlands gave Muslims a favorable rating. While 47% of Germans on the political right give Muslims an unfavorable rating, just 17% on the left do so.The gap between left and right is also roughly 30 percentage points in Italy and Greece.This pattern is expected to continue through 2030, when Muslims are projected to make up 8% of Europe’s population. In 2010, the median age of Muslims throughout Europe was 32, eight years younger than the median for all Europeans (40).

In Europe overall, however, Russia’s population of 14 million Muslims (10%) is the largest on the continent.

As of 2010, the European Union was home to about 13 million Muslim immigrants.

The foreign-born Muslim population in Germany is primarily made up of Turkish immigrants, but also includes many born in Kosovo, Iraq, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Morocco.

Recent killings in Paris as well as the arrival of hundreds of thousands of mostly Muslim refugees in Europe have drawn renewed attention to the continent’s Muslim population.

In many European countries, including France, Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands, concerns about growing Muslim communities have led to calls for restrictions on immigration.The roughly 3 million foreign-born Muslims in France are largely from France’s former colonies of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia.
