Divorce Rates in Islamic Countries

Divorce rates in Islamic countries

Many of the major Islamic countries do not report their divorce rates to the United Nations so there is limited data about divorce rates in these countries.  The major countries with missing data are Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh all of which have over 100 million Muslims among their population.  For Indonesia there have been reports in the press and scientific literature about divorce rates.

The United Nations publishes an Annual Demographic Year Book for 2011 includes a table of divorce rates  for about 200 countries in the world.  The data in this table are from the 2011 yearbook.  Many countries have not reported their 2011 data, but some have made these reports.  More reports on divorce rates around the world are reported here….
