American Samoa population continues to decline

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — American Samoa’s 2019 mid-year populations stands at over 58,000 — a loss of 1,000 residents — and the female population is higher than the male population, according to the latest data released by the Statistics Division of the Commerce Department.

Samoa News reported in August of last year, based on DOC data, that the territory’s mid-year 2018 population was estimated at 59,600 — a loss of 700 people compared to July 1, 2017.

According to DOC information released Monday this week, the 2019 mid-year population is estimated at 58,500 — a recorded loss of 1,100 to the resident population due to high outmigration, increased mortality, and declining fertility.

According to DOC, the population estimate is derived from the Balancing Equation Method by adding the natural growth — births minus deaths — and net migration of residents and immigrants to the base population ever year.
