According to Ethnologue, Modern Aramaic is spoken by around 550,000, people of various communities from across the Middle East, especially in Syria and Israel, including Christians, Jews, Mandaeans and Muslims.

More than 90% of Modern Aramaic speakers either speak Assyrian Neo-Aramaic or the Chaldean Neo-Aramaic variety.
