Montserrats population on May 12, 2011 confirmed at 4,922

A year ago Montserrat joined the rest of the East Caribbean in conducting a census, last one being  2001, and 1991 prior to that.

Today the Statistics Department issued a release ahead of the Census booklet which they announce will be released on Wednesday, April 4, 2012.

The release gave a brief summary of the Usual Resident Population.

It said: ”On May 12, 2011, the usual resident population of Montserrat consisted of 4,922 persons, 51.7 per cent of whom were male and 48.3 per cent female.    The total number of usual residents was 10.2 per cent or 457 more persons than the 2001 Census.   This suggests that the population who reside permanently on Montserrat, grew on average by 45 persons per year.   The growth in 2011 contrasts the decline that was observed in the previous intercensal period 1991-2001, when the 2001 usual resident population was less than half of the 1991 count.

Where we usual residents found?  Most of Montserrat’s usual residents, that is 4,843 persons, occupied private dwellings in May 2011.  The remaining 79 persons were found in collective living quarters at the Homes for the Elderly and Her Majesty’s Prison.   The population living in these collective housing units or ’non-private’ dwellings fell by more than 50 per cent when compared to Census 2001.

The usual resident population of Montserrat was centred in Look Out.  Usual residents numbered more than 600 persons or 13.6 per cent of the population in the 2011 Census.  The majority of residents living outside of Look Out were located in Brades/Shinnlands (9.1%) and St Peter’s (8.9%).
