Around 100,000 Muslims call St. Louis, Missouri their home, according to the Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis. Estimates suggest that between 25,000 and 30,000 of them are adult women.
The Louis Metropolitan Statistical Area, MO-IL, is situated on the banks of the Mississippi River and encompasses a total of 16 counties in southern Illinois and northern Missouri. The city of St. Louis is a bustling Mississippi River port city. Although the population of the city has slightly decreased in recent years, the suburbs and surrounding counties have grown steadily, causing the metropolitan area to expand in size over the past five years by 0.86%. The Louis metropolitan area is home to nine Fortune 500 companies, as well as a highly developed medical industry. This attracts many educated immigrants looking for work in these fields.
The average quality of life in St. Louis is also very high compared to most large metropolitan areas. The city's efforts to make it more immigrant-friendly and to attract more immigrants every year makes St. Louis a central city for immigration and diversity. St.
Louis has a considerable European, Latin American, and Asian ethnic composition. Throughout the city's history, European immigrants came mainly from Eastern European countries such as Italy, France, and Germany. However, there has recently been an influx of Bosnian refugees to the St. Louis metropolitan area. Now the Bosnian people are one of the largest ethnic groups in the city, and St.
Louis has the largest Bosnian population outside its home country. The Asian population has also skyrocketed in recent years due to the city's advanced medical and life science industries which attract educated immigrants from South and East Asian countries such as China, Korea, and India. If immigration trends continue this way, St. Louis could soon have one of the highest percentages of the country's Asian population. The New Immigrants of St.
