By regionEdit

These percentages were calculated by using the above numbers. The first percentage, 4th column, is the percentage of population that is Muslim in a region (Muslims in the region * 100/total population of the region). The last column shows the Muslim percentage compared to the total Muslim population of the world (Muslims in the region * 100/total Muslim population of the world).

(Note: Egypt, Sudan, and the Arab Maghreb countries are counted as part of North Africa, not Middle East).
