The objective of this study is to provide an empirical analysis of economic and social factors affecting the formation of a Muslim identity among female Muslim students. Employing binary choice models this paper demonstrates that female Muslim students studying at LondonMet are more likely to wear a veil if their mother wears a veil. Further, they are less likely to wear a veil the higher is their mother’s level of education, if they are married and if they were born in Pakistan.
