INED Study Claims a Growing Number of French Muslims Attend Religious Services

Of the 10,079 respondents in France in an INED (French National Institute of Demographic Studies) poll who were recently asked, ¨What is your religious adherence?” only 7% claimed to participate in a faith tradition. A growing number of respondents responded “no religion.” While the number of Catholics continues to decline, the study points to an increasing number of Muslims. Less than 2% of those Muslims who were reported were between 65-79 years-old, while 7% were between 18-24 years-old. 34% of Muslim men and 14% of Muslim women claim they visit their religious centre more than twice a month.
