More than 500,000 Muslim residents of Spain are Spanish [sic] and, of those, more than half were born in the country, according to the "Demographic study of the Muslim population. Statistical elaboration of the census of Muslim citizens in Spain' dated 31/12/2012, prepared by the Unión de Comunidades Islámicas de España (UCIDE) [Union of Islamic Communities in Spain] and the Observatorio Andalusí, based on data from the electoral roll, Ministries of the Interior, Justice and Education and UCIDE.

Thus, the study, to which Europa Press has had access, reveals that of the 1.6 million Muslims in Spain, 1.1 million are foreigners and 513,942 are Spanish [sic].

...Specifically, it was noted that in 54 years, 142,393 Muslims acquired citizenship in the period between 1958 and 1997; 61,086 in the decade 1998 to 2007; and 52,095 between 2008 and 2011.

Looking at the origin, it emerges from the data that the two big numerical blocks of the Muslim population in Spain are the Spanish [sic] (513,942) and Moroccans (783,137), along with Pakis (79,626), Senegalese (63,491) and Algerians (62,432).

With regards to regions, those with the most Muslim citizens are Catalonia (448,879), Andalusia, (266,421), Madrid (249,643), Valencia (176,053), Murcia (86.275), the Canaries (66,969) and Castilla La Mancha (56,551); while those with the fewest are Cantabria (4,416) and Asturias (6,818).
