165. Shias are the majority of the population.
Edited on Thu Dec-14-06 03:50 AM by amandabeech
Approximately 60%, I believe. Sunni Arabs are about 20% as are the Kurds who are a totally different ethnic group even though they are Sunni Moslems.

Other groups are Turkmen, Assyrians and some Christian groups, I think.

Some of the large provinces in western Iraq are very thinly populated because the areas are nearly desert.
