Islam is the second most widely professed religion in France (behind only Christianity). France has the largest number of Muslims in the Western world, primarily due to migration from Maghrebi, West African, and Middle Eastern countries.[1][2][3] These numbers also correspond to the CIA estimates for the number of Muslims in France.[4] French polling company IFOP estimated in 2016 that French Muslims number between 3 and 4 million, and claimed that Muslims make up 5.6% of French people older than 15, and 10% of those younger than 25.[5] According to the latest Eurobarometer poll (2019), on the other hand, the Muslim population in France is 5% of the total population.
