THE VALLEY - Preliminary findings from the Anguilla Population and Housing Census (AP&HC) 2011 indicate that the enumerated population at the Visitation Record (VR) stage was 13,452 persons. The visitation record stage was the preliminary count stage, which allowed for these preliminary figures to be compiled in the interim; that is, while the data from the main questionnaire are being coded, edited, scanned and verified, prior to the logic checks, analysis and report writing.

The figures indicate that there was a 16.4% increase in the total population over the 2001 census figure of 11,561. Of the total 13,452 persons, 6,663 or 49.5% were males and the remaining 6,795 or 50.5% were females; a sex ratio of 98.06, that is for every 98 males there are 100 females or for every 1 male there are 1.02 females.

The total count however, which includes persons in institutions including hotels and guest houses along with boat within Anguilla’s waters on May 11 – Census night was 13,965.
