St. John: No growth

Vi pop mapThe 2010 Census figures for the U.S. Virgin Islands show there has been a decline in population.  No previous Census report showed losses.

On April 1, 2010, the population of the Territory was 106,405, the Census Bureau said.  That's a decrease of 0.2 percent from 2000, or about 200.

The number of people on St. John also fell, by 27, to 4,170.

A graphical representation of population movement showed the East End population decreasing 10-18%, while Cruz Bay and Coral Bay saw a decline of 1-10%.  The Central region's population grew as much as 9.9%.

Cenus said that next year it will release demographix information about St.John.  That data will describe "social, economic and housing characteristics for the Island," the Bureau said in a statement.
