Rate : Percentage Muslim

Rates are used to define comparative statistics that can be mapped and graphed. For example, our occupational information includes counts of the number of workers in employment and out of employment, as well as the total number of workers. We then define a measure called the 'Unemployment Rate', which uses the number out of work rather than the number in work, and expresses it as a percentage of the total, rather than a rate per thousand. The descriptive text in the system is defined mainly for rates.

Muslims were the largest of the non-Christian religions in 2001, but the proportion of the total population may surprise some people: 2.78%. Over two-thirds of them lived in the 44 districts whose populations are over 5% Muslim, and these districts were overwhelmingly urban. The highest proportions were in Tower Hamlets (36%), Newham (24%), Blackburn with Darwen (19%) and Bradford (16%).
