The U.S. Census Bureau today released the official Census 2000 population count of 57,291 for American Samoa.
As part of Census 2000, the Census Bureau worked with the American Samoan government to collect detailed population and housing data. The count was provided to American Samoa Gov. Tauese P.F. Sunia.
American Samoa's population increased by 10,518 over the previous census in 1990. This represented a 22 percent increase in 10 years.
The Census Bureau will provide more detailed data for American Samoa 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 American Samoa:
