COUNTRIES WITH THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF THE POPULATION WHO ARE MENNONITE

While the United States has the most Mennonites in the world (approximately 323,000), using percentage of the population, it ranks only #12 (at 0.11% of the population). Much greater concentrations occur in some Latin American and Africa countries and Canada. Despite this Christian denomination forming in Switzerland in the 1500s, no European country ranks in this list.

An easily identifiable and noticeable minority in Belize, those Mennonites mostly came from the United States and Canada.
