Comoros Demographics

Most of the population of the Comoros is descended from African-Arabs. Sunni Islam is the main religion that represents up to 98% of the population. While Arab culture is dominant in the country, there is a small population of Mayotte, who are mostly immigrants from France. There are also small populations of Malagasy and Indians, with some people of French and European ancestry. Most French people left Comoros after it gained independence in 1975.

Since its independence, the Comoros has gone through many coups and half of the population now lives below the international poverty line of $1.25 USD per day.
