There are two major factors behind the rapid projected growth of Islam, and both involve simple demographics.For one, Muslims have more children than members of other religious groups.
This, combined with high fertility rates, will fuel Muslim population growth.But views toward Muslims (as well as several of the other groups) are now warmer than they were a few years ago; in 2014, U. adults gave Muslims an average rating of 40 degrees in a similar survey. In addition, a December 2016 survey found that more Republicans than Democrats say Islam is likelier than other religions to encourage violence among its believers (63% vs. And while most Americans (69%) believe there is a lot of discrimination against Muslims in the U. today, views are again split by party: 85% of Democrats and those who lean Democratic and 49% of Republicans and GOP leaners hold this view.Republicans and those who lean toward the Republican Party gave Muslims an average rating of 39, considerably cooler than Democrats’ rating toward Muslims (56). Republicans also are more likely than Democrats to say that Islam is not part of mainstream American society (68% vs.Recent surveys show that most people in several countries with significant Muslim populations have an unfavorable view of ISIS, including virtually all respondents in Lebanon and 94% in Jordan.Relatively small shares say they see ISIS favorably.Yet many facts about Muslims are not well known in some of these places, and most Americans – who live in a country with a relatively small Muslim population – have said they know little or nothing about Islam.Here are answers to some key questions about Muslims, compiled from several Pew Research Center reports published in recent years: There were 1.8 billion Muslims in the world as of 2015 – roughly 24% of the global population – according to a Pew Research Center estimate.Across the seven Muslim-majority countries and territories surveyed, a median of 68% of Muslims said they view Westerners as selfish.Considerable shares also called Westerners other negative adjectives, including violent (median of 66%), greedy (64%) and immoral (61%), while fewer attributed positive characteristics like “respectful of women” (44%), honest (33%) and tolerant (31%) to Westerners. A median of 50% across four Western European countries, the U. and Russia called Muslims violent and a median of 58% called them “fanatical,” but fewer used negative words like greedy, immoral or selfish.Around the world, each Muslim woman has an average of 2.9 children, compared with 2.2 for all other groups combined.Muslims are also the youngest (median age of 24 years old in 2015) of all major religious groups, seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims.
