Islam is the predominant religion, followed by more than 90 percent of the country's population. This figure includes all these born in families considered of Muslim descent. Officially Algerians are Muslims at nearly 100%, however atheists or other kinds of non-believers are not counted in the statistics. Nearly all Algerians belong to the Sunni Islam, with the exception of some 200,000 ibadis in the M'zab Valley in the region of Ghardaia.
There are also some 150,000 Christians in the country, among whom 10,000 Catholics and 80,000 to 130,000 evangelical Protestants, according to the Protestant Church of Algeria's leader Mustapha Krim.
Algeria had an important Jewish community until the 1960s, but there is no active Jewish community today, although a very small number of Jews continue to live in Algiers.
