Muslim demographics by constituency

The results of the 2011 National Census for England and Wales are of course publicly available. However it can be a nuisance trying to find something when you want it.

We have downloaded the table of religion by constituency, and summarised it to show:

  1. An alphabetic list of constituencies, showing total numbers, Muslim numbers and Muslim percentage.
  2. An ordered list, ranking constituencies by the percentage of Muslim residents.

The spreadsheet is available in two formats:

Excel workbook

Open document format spreadsheet

We have also pasted below the 80 constituencies where Muslims were 10% or more of the residents. As these are 2011 figures, the number of constituencies in this category will have increased since Muslims, on average, are younger than people who are white British.
