The Guardian: Everyone thinks there are more Muslims in their countries than there actually are

The Guardian reviewed a new study that shows that those in Western countries have no idea what percentage of their populations are Muslim. In every country examined, the population’s estimates were many times higher than reality.

For example, respondents assumed that one in six individuals living in the US is Muslim, while in reality, it’s closer to one in 100.
