American & a Convert?

​Are You an American (U.S.-born) Convert to Islam?

Figure 4 is a representation of responses to the question of whether the participants self-identify as American converts to Islam. For the purposes of this study, analysis is only of those responses in which the participants answered a majority of the quantitative and qualitative questions and self-identified as American converts to Islam. There were a total of 459 responses to the survey. However, of the 459 only 281 were complete responses, and of those 281 responses, 257 self-identified as U.S. female converts to Islam. This thesis focuses on the 257 female respondents of who self-identified as American (U.S.-born) converts to Islam. The remaining 24 respondents answered ‘no’, that they were not American converts to Islam and identified as citizens of other countries and/or born Muslims. The analysis of the 178 partial responses as well as the 24 full responses from participants who did not identify as U.S. female converts to Islam will occur at a later date.
