Religious belonging - estimations

Since the 1965 census, questionnaires no longer contain questions on religious belonging. The figures below are therefore estimations:

- Sunni Muslims: 55 million
- Alevis: 15 million
- Greek Orthodox: 25, 000 to 35, 000 (of which only 4, 000 – 5, 000 are Greek speaking. The remaining are Arabic speakers from Antioch)
- Armenian Orthodox: 60, 000 to 70, 000
- Jews: 20,000 to 30,000
