According to the World Atlas, members of other religious groups combined constitute less than 1 percent of the population and include a small Christian community of approximately 1,000, a small Sufi Muslim community, and an unknown number of Shia Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and those not affiliated with muslim umbrella. Yet there a closest currently functioning diocese is the Diocese of Djibouti, to the north of Somaliland, although it nominally falls under the Diocese of Mogadiscio.
