Outlying Areas Under the Jurisdiction of the United States
This section presents summary statistics on the industrial, social, and agricultural organization of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and similar data for the principal possessions of the United States (Virgin Islands, Guam, and American Samoa), the Canal Zone, and, wherever possible, the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands.
Primary sources of these data are the decennial censuses of population, housing, and agriculture, and the quinquennial censuses of business and manufactures conducted by the Bureau of the Census; the annual Vital Statistics of the United States issued by the Public Health Service; the biennial Statistics of State School Systems published by the Office of Education; and the Minerals Yearbook of the Bureau of Mines.
The circumstances under which the United States gained jurisdiction over these areas are as follows:
The islands of Puerto Rico and Guam, surrendered by Spain to the United States in October 1898, were ceded to the United States by the Treaty of Paris, ratified in 1899. Puerto Rico became a commonwealth on July 25, 1952.
The Virgin Islands were purchased by the United States from Denmark in 1917. American Samoa was acquired by the United States in accordance with a convention among the United States, Great Britain, and Germany, ratified in February 1900.
The use, occupation, and control of the Canal Zone were granted to the United States under the terms of a treaty with the Republic of Panama, ratified in 1904. The Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands is comprised of 2,141 atolls and islands, about 96 of which are inhabited. This territory, formerly under Japanese mandate, was placed under the United Nations trusteeship system by an agreement approved by the Security Council in April 1947, and by the United States in July 1947.
For a brief summary of the territorial development of the United States, see tables 4 and 278 in sections 1 and 6, respectively.
Censuses. Because of differences in the population and housing characteristics and the varieties of agricultural products among the outlying areas, the presentation of census data is not uniform for all areas. However, the tables in this section give, as nearly as possible, comparable data for the areas. The 1960 Census of Population covered all of the places listed above except the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands (the census of which was conducted in April 1958 by the Office of the High Commissioner), whereas the 1960 Census of Housing covered only Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands. The 1970 Census of Population and Housing covered all six areas but some data for Puerto Rico were not available in time for publication in this Abstract. The 1959 and 1969 Censuses of Agriculture covered Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, and the Virgin Islands; the 1964 Census covered the same areas except American Samoa. Censuses of Business and Manufactures were conducted in Puerto Rico for 1954, 1958, 1963, and 1967, and in Guam and the Virgin Islands for 1958, 1963, and 1967.
For definition and explanation of terms used, see section 1, Population; section 23, Agriculture; section 27, Construction and Housing; section 28, Manufactures; and section 29, Distribution and Services.
