The U.S. Census Bureau today released the 2010 Census population counts for American Samoa. On April 1, 2010, the population was 55,519. This represented a decrease of 3.1 percent from the 2000 Census population of 57,291. The population counts have been provided to the governor.
The accompanying data table shows population totals and percent changes from 2000 to 2010 for American Samoa as well as several lower-level geographies. The attached custom maps include a reference map and maps showing the population by county and percent change in population by county.
As part of the 2010 Census, the Census Bureau worked with the American Samoa government to enumerate and gather detailed data on population and housing characteristics. Next year, more 2010 Census statistics will be available for American Samoa in a demographic profile. The demographic profile will show a set of basic demographic, social, economic and housing characteristics for the Island Area and lower levels of geography.
Additional Geographic Resources
Two key geographic resources have been released for American Samoa this summer: a series of maps showing the 2010 Census blocks and 2010 TIGER/Line Shapefiles. The series of large-scale block maps provide a reference guide for geographic entities down to the census block level and display the boundaries and numbers for all census blocks. The 2010 Census TIGER/Line Shapefiles provide a base layer for mapping and contain the location and relationship of streets, rivers and other features to one another. The shapefiles also show the numerous geographic entities for which Census Bureau statistics are available.
