Census Bureau Releases Census 2000 Population Counts for the U.S. Virgin Islands

The U.S. Census Bureau today released the official Census 2000 population count of 108,612 for the U.S. Virgin Islands.

As part of Census 2000, the Census Bureau worked with the U.S. Virgin Islands government to collect detailed population and housing data. The count was provided to Virgin Islands Gov. Charles Wesley Turnbull.

The U.S. Virgin Islands population increased by 6,803 over the previous census in 1990. This represented a seven percent increase in 10 years.

The Census Bureau will provide more detailed data for the U.S. Virgin Islands in a demographic profile scheduled for release later this year and in a separate summary file and printed report, scheduled for release in February 2002 and November 2002, respectively.

The following table shows the final census counts for small geographic areas in the U.S. Virgin Islands:
