Sample text

More than 80 percent claimed to have fasted during all of Ramadan, and 8 percent did not fast at all. Youths, the most educated, and people with mixed ancestry differ in this practice: this last group fasts less systematically throughout Ramadan, contrary to youths and the most educated. Finally, even though very few had completed the pilgrimage to Mecca, 81 percent of Muslims have the intention to do so. The youngest are, again, the most likely to consider it. Nearly 10 percent of regularly practicing Muslims have already gone to Mecca, and nearly all the other members of this group have the intention of going.
