Muslims in the America’s

The Americas are the lands of the Western hemisphere consisting of the continents of North America and South America with their associated islands and regions including 35 independent countries. The Americas cover 8.3% of the Earth’s total surface area (28.4% of its land area) and contain about 14% of the population.

South America has an area of 17,840,000 km² (6,890,000 sq mi), or almost 3.5% of the Earth’s surface. As of 2005, its population was estimated at more than 371,000,000.
North America’s population was estimated at over 518,575,000 in early 2007 which includes Central America. (The USA and Canada population is around 331,600,000.) It is unclear just how many Muslims are represented in the America’s and estimates vary considerably.
