The US economy is the largest national economy in the world, and the US accounts for about a quarter of the world’s GDP.

What is the Muslim population in United States of America
According to a report by the Pew Research Center, the Muslim population in United States of America is about 3.3 million, which is about 1% of the total population. The Pew Research Center also estimates that by 2050 the number of Muslims living in the US will double from current levels. The Pew Research Center has estimated that in 2040, Muslims will be the second largest religious group in America after Christians. That is, they will leave the Jews behind in 25 years.
It is estimated that the number of Muslims living in America is less than the Jews living there, whose number is about 5.7 million. At the same time, the number of Hindus in America is about 21 lakh. Thus the population of Muslims is more than that of Hindus. The Pew Research Center says that Islam is currently the fastest growing religion in the world.
The population of Muslims in America is higher than the average in some states. For example, some states like New Jersey have a high Muslim population. The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 in America and the subsequent Muslim extremist incidents have strengthened anti-Muslim sentiments.
The Pew Research Center estimates that the number of Muslims in the US has increased significantly since 2007. One reason for this is the influx of refugees into the country. The number of Muslim refugees entering the US in FY 2016 is 38,901, while the US accepted 85,000 refugees in total during this period.
