There were 3.45 mil­lion Mus­lims in the United States as of 2017, ac­count­ing for roughly 1.1 per­cent of the to­tal U.S. pop­u­la­tion, ac­cord­ing to an es­ti­mate by the Pew Re­search Cen­ter, a non­par­ti­san or­ga­ni­za­tion that con­ducts pub­lic opin­ion polling, de­mo­graphic re­search, con­tent anal­y­sis and other data-driven so­cial sci­ence re­search. The cen­ter also es­ti­mated 2 per­cent of adults in Arkansas are Mus­lim.

The U.S. Cen­sus Bureau does not ask ques­tions about reli­gion, mean­ing there is no of­fi­cial gov­ern­ment count of the U.S. Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion.
