Do you have detailed percentage data for Muslims versus Christians in Anatolia at various points in history, though?
Not that detailed, but still, a couple of figures:

How was Rum defined here?
At this time (1520-35) according to the footnotes of the table it covered the livas/sancaks/subprovinces of Amasya, Çorum Tokat, Karahisar-ı Şarki (Şebinkarahisar), Canik, , Trabzon, Malatya, Divriği, Darende, Kemah, Bayburt.

You can see a map of Rum eyaleti on the wiki ( Rum Eyaleti - Vikipedi ), but that reflects a later time, when Rum province was smaller. Now unfortunetly i couldn't find a corresponding map, but if you look up the names of the towns (the sancaks were named after their seat towns), you can get a very approximate idea.

In the 1520-35 datas Rum eyaleti still included Trabzon/Trapezunt, a still relatively freshly conquered (in 1461) area for example, so I suspect most of the Christian households were concentrated in that Black sea region.
