1.
M. Arif Ghayur, "Muslims in the United States: Settlers and Visitors," Annals AAPPS 454 ( March 1981): 153.
2.
A figure of 3 million has been reported by the Zwemer Institute in Altadena, California, and Zaman in a report by Yvonne Haddad and Adair T. Lummis, "Islamic Values in the United States: A Comprehensive Study," unpublished paper, p. 1.
3.
Ancestry of the Population by the State: 1980 ( Washington, D.C.: Bureau of Census, Department of Commerce, 1983), pp. 12-32.
4.
" Immigrants admitted by Country or Region of Birth, 1954-1986" (report prepared for the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Department of Justice, Washington, D.C., 1987), pp. 1-14.
5.
" Muslim Population" (report prepared for Zwemer Institute of Muslim Studies, Altadena, Calif., 1987), pp. 1-4. Percentages reported here are similar to estimates reported in an independent publication, in Colin McEvedy and Richard Jones, Atlas of World Population History ( New York: Facts on File, 1978). Data for China were a notable exception, where the Zwemer Institute reported 4%, and McEvedy and Jones reported 30% Muslim. An average value of 17.7% was chosen for the study, a value very similar to the average percentage of Muslim population in Asia.

Ghayur provides an estimate of 40,000 Anglican—American Muslims in " Muslims in the United States: Settlers and Visitors," Annals AAPPS 454 ( March 1981): p. 153.
13.
Ancestry of the Population by State: 1980, pp. 77-78.
14.
Muslim Journal, 7801 S. Cottage Grove, Chicago, Ill. (telephone interview, January 1989). Sr. Aisha Mustafa, editor of the journal, emphasizes that the estimate of one million represents an average of all African—American Muslims, both unaffiliated and affiliated.
15.
Statistical Abstract of the United States, p. 52.
16.
Estimates of geographical concentration may be exaggerated or minimized by large concentrations of Muslims or non-Muslims relative to the proportion of Muslims from that ancestral country.
17.
Statistical Abstract of the United States, p. 20.
18.

" Muslim Population," pp. 1-2.

Ibid., p. 2.
21.
Ibid.
22.
Ibid., p. 1. The relatively large number of Egyptian immigrants deflated the overall proportion of Muslim immigration to 87% in 1986 and may have led to exaggerated estimates during this time period.
23.
Ibid., p. 2.
24.
The proportion of Muslim immigrants from these countries may have deviated with time from the proportion of Muslims reported to reside in the countries. This would lead to exaggerated or diminished estimates.
