Muslims are expected to outnumber Jews as the second-largest religious group in the U.S. by 2040, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center.

The study found that some 6.7 million Americans, making up 2.1 percent of the total U.S. population, identify as Jews, while 3.45 million people, representing 1.1 percent of the population, identify as Muslims. Pew said its projections for the coming decades “suggest that the U.S. Muslim population will grow much faster than the country’s Jewish population.”
