Estimates of the Population of Puerto Rico and the Outlying Areas: 1980-1983.
Current Population Reports, Series P-25 n960 Nov 1984
This report presents estimates of the population for July 1, 1980, to 1983 for Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands of the United States, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the remainder of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. For each of these areas, the report also gives 1980 census counts and the components of population change for the 1980-83 period (i.e. natural change, or births minus deaths and net migration). The following are the report's major points: (1) except for Puerto Rico, all of the areas are growing at a rate well above that of the United States; (2) of all the areas, Guam has exhibited the highest percent growth since 1980; (3) almost half of the large increase in the population of Guam between July 1, 1982, and July 1, 1983 was due to an increase of 2,700 in the number of dependents of the Armed Forces; (4) Puerto Rico grew by only 2.2 percent since 1980, partly because of the high net migration out of Puerto Rico between 1980 and 1983; and (5) the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands all exhibited growth rates between those of Guam and Puerto Rico.
