A sleeper is Buffalo. There are quite a few Yemenis there. Lackawanna and parts of the city of Buffalo have quite a few. Some are in parts of Amherst as well.

And where are your numbers and the reference to back them? Until you post something worthwhile, you're opinions are pretty much completely bogus.

This is from the Lewis Mumford Center's website (my source):

This website was created by Dr. John Logan and a team under his direction, while he was Director of the Lewis Mumford Center at the University at Albany. Dr. Logan continues this research as a faculty associate of the Mumford Center and as Professor of Sociology at Brown University. Further information about his activities can be found at the website of the American Communities Project.

These pages offer information and analyses of how the racial and ethnic composition of metropolitan areas has shifted in the last ten years, and how increasing diversity is experienced at the level of local neighborhoods.

For example, analysis of available 2000 data shows very slow change since 1980 in residential segregation of African Americans - in some smaller and newer metropolitan areas, their segregation from whites has declined markedly, but in the larger places where most African Americans lived, segregation has remained high. Segregation of Hispanics and Asians has not changed in the last two decades.

Do you have newer, official numbers? Obviously the numbers have increased, but until we have access to the new information, we won't know.

Your numbers are bogus considering the Census numbers. Your table states that 52K muslims in NYC are south Asian. Consideringr that the official number of South Asians in NYC (excluding Indian; only Pakistani and Bangladeshi) is 200K according to the 2000 estimates - off the bat - the numbers are wrong. Unless of course you doubt the official 2000 census numbers.

End of discussion. Case closed.

Oh, and here are is my source. 600K muslims in NYC proper (probably close to 1MM for the metro area)

Columbia News ::: Columbia Presents First-Ever Study on Muslim Political, Social, Religious Identity in NYC

Please dont argue with me when it comes to demographics. Thanks in advance!

Houston ranks pretty high on the list, then again I'm not surprised with all of the major oil & energy companies headquartered there.

I am curious if also in terms of this do the populations in each metro have different ethnic groups that comprise the lagest percentage of Muslims?

Another outlier in some of these numbers would be Bosnians who tend to be Muslim. This really is only relevant for St. Louis area in terms of overall numbers. But then again they tend to be not that devout due to historical reasons relating to Communism. (also have historically been more liberal in their beliefs compared to other groups of Muslims)

I am also curious if it has ever been broken down by different divisions and sects of Islam?

It's hard to know.
In Houston muslims are mostly Pakistanis and Nigerians...In Detroit/Dearborn they're mostly lebanese/iraqis...etc...

Overall, Texas Muslim population isn't extremely high. Houston has the most in Texas though.

No, but it is one of the fastest-growing in the US because this state attracts many muslim immigrants now (pakistan, iran, nigeria)
