Elijah asked in TravelUnited StatesDetroit · 1 decade ago

Does Dearborn, MI have the largest population of Muslims in the country, or just in Michigan?

...Or just in like..the mid-west? ...just curious because I live in Ann Arbor and I thought that Ann Arbor had a lot of muslims but when I heard about Dearborn I was like wow I had no idea they had that big of a muslim population.

    Muslim Population In Dearborn Mi

    they have about 40,000 arabs there with the next largest groups being the germans with 13,000 the polish with 11,000 and the irish with 10,000

    now thats a huge difference with 40,000 compared to 13,000 and 38.7% of the population is arab there

    even the stores and bakeries and markets have arabic writing on them but you have to keep in mind dearborn is huge and theres a highly denses arab part of it

    ann arbors largest group is actually the germans with 22,000 people and then the english with 14,000 and then the irish with 12,000

    theres only about 2,000 arabs in ann arbor but the most you probably see are students

    There are a lot of Arabic people in the Detroit metropolitan area, but they're not all Muslims. There is a significant Chaldean (Iraqi Christian) population as well.
