Disproportionately Compared To What, Exactly?

Here is an article on the BBC website, about Muslims in Birmingham who don't like all those pesky cameras that might record some of them doing things that are against the law.

Note, in the very first sentence of the piece, the second word, the one that comes just after "a": "A disproportionately high concentration of CCTV cameras located in mainly Muslim areas of Birmingham continues to trigger concern from residents."

Why "disproportionately"? Wherefore "disproprtionately?"
