This blog continues to bring you the Census 2010 preliminary report.
"The differences in definition among such terms as “Enumerated Population”, “Estimated Population” and “Household Population” must also be taken into account. Note that the enumerated population is the sum of all persons recorded on visitation records and/or census questionnaires, while the estimated population is the enumerated population plus an estimate of persons who belong to existing households but who could not be contacted/counted throughout the process of census enumeration. The household population includes all persons who reside in private households in Saint Lucia. " says St. Catherine

The results presented in this report were obtained from the initial analysis of the data collected during Saint Lucia’s 2010 Population and Housing Census. This means that the
figures herein are subject to review and may not exactly match final Census statistics.
The Central Statistical Office will launch a more detailed publication of the results of the 2010 Census in early March 2011.
Additionally, the comparisons made between the 2010 and 2001 census figures may be
affected by definitional and other analytical variations. Therefore, users of this information should scrutinize the related tables with an appropriate degree of caution.
The differences in definition among such terms as “Enumerated Population”, “Estimated Population” and “Household Population” must also be taken into account. Note that the enumerated population is the sum of all persons recorded on visitation records and/or census questionnaires, while the estimated population is the enumerated population plus an estimate of persons who belong to existing households but who could not be contacted/counted throughout the process of census enumeration. The household population includes all persons who reside in private households in Saint Lucia.
THE POPULATION SIZE AND DENSITY
The island-nation of Saint Lucia recorded an overall household population increase of 5
percent from May 2001 to May 2010 based on estimates derived from a complete enumeration of the population of Saint Lucia during the conduct of the recently completed 2010 Population and Housing Census.
Saint Lucia’s total resident population as at midnight on Census Day, the 10th May 2010
stood at 166,526 persons. Saint Lucia’s total population including non-resident persons was estimated to be 173,720, the total number of non-resident persons was 7,194. The preliminary count of Saint Lucia’s enumerated population was 151,864 persons reflecting a response rate to the census of 92%. The total resident population of St. Lucia is comprised of 82,926 males and 83,600 females. Out of this sum, there were 165,595 individuals residing in private households, 931 persons living in institutions .
An estimate of persons who were not counted because they could not be contacted
during the census’ enumeration phase was added to the enumerated household population of 151,864 to produce an estimated household population of 165,595 persons. This total compared to the 2001 Census’ estimated household population of 157,775 indicates an overall household population increase of 5.0 percent.
Out of the ten districts in Saint Lucia, household population contractions were reported
in the districts of Laborie, Dennery and Choiseul. Laborie recorded the largest household
Preliminary 2010 Census results show that Saint Lucia’s island wide population density
is 796 persons per square mile. This figure was calculated using a land area of 208 square miles that excludes Saint Lucia’s forest reserve areas. These forest reserve areas cover approximately 30 square miles. The district of Castries, the location of Saint Lucia’s capital city, had a population density of 2,139 persons per square mile. The least densely populated district, with a population density of 434 persons per square mile, was the district of Soufriere. The district of Gros Islet, which experienced the most rapid population expansion, recorded a population density of 643 individuals per square mile up from 532 in 2001. In 1991, census figures reported a population density of 345 persons per square mile in the district of Gros Islet.
Gros Islet was the least densely populated district in Saint Lucia at that time.

We will be more than happy to send it to you.

Another commuity road was constructed in Morne Jacques and again, the residents don't walk in mud anymore. Persons leaving their homes had to have two pairs of shoes - one to wade the mud until they arrive at the main road and the other to dress up to get to work or wherever their destination.
The people of Derriere Morne are fortunate to have the longest footath to have been constructed in Choiseul. This one is a monster of a project. Is that to fool the people as one critic puts it? Some persons live in the glory of their environment and don't see the need for other persons to elevate to a higher standard of living. This is Bousquet's vision - selfnessless and committment to Choiseulians to have a better life.

Some 1,000 people honored Martin Luther King Jr. this morning at the city's annual holiday breakfast in his name, remembering the slain civil rights leader as a transformative force for good and pledging to build upon his legacy.
"He showed us the path," said Martha Coakley, the state's attorney general, who paid tribute to King as an inspiring figure who "fought for the dignity of every human being."
In a well-received speech at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, keynote speaker Melissa Harris-Perry drew parallels between today's divisive political climate and 1967, the year of King's final book "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?"
"We have a right, and a responsibility, to choose community," Harris-Perry, a Princeton professor of politics and African-American Studies, said to applause. "We can do it. We must do it."
Harris-Perry noted that King wrote his book after the passage of two pieces of landmark legislation - the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. At the time, hopes for further gains were high but proved hard-won in the face of fierce resistance, causing deep disillusionment.
The historic 2008 election of President Barack Obama, she said, had sparked similar resistance and disappointment.
"It was a period of backlash," she said, referring to 1967. "We were told it was all moving too fast."
"I see critical parallels between 1967 and 2011," she told the crowd, which included many African-American leaders and activists from Boston and across the region.
In the wake of the shootings in Arizona, Americans face a similar choice between chaos and community, she said.
"We have a choice to grasp onto the story of Dr. King and make it our own," she said.
At the start of the breakfast, a moment of silence was observed for the victims of the Arizona shootings.
Events honoring King were held across the region today. Governor Deval Patrick was scheduled to attend a celebration in Springfield this morning, as well as the Boston Children’s Chorus' tribute concert this evening at Jordan Hall.
In Jamaica Plain, 500 volunteers were gathering for a day of service, including making scarves and dental-care kits for the homeless and baby blankets for low-income families.
In earlier remarks at the breakfast, US Senator Scott Brown praised King as a "visionary" who fought courageously for justice, and inspired the best in people.
"He wanted us to be better," he said, adding that people need to set aside partisan differences for "what's best for our state and country."
"We're all just people," Brown said. "I wish we could do just do the right thing and get along."

The presentation ceremony was less elaborate than the one at the Reunion Primary. This being due to the time constraints.
Bousquet's message to the school was basically the same except he injected into the pupils a sense of enterprenuership.
The principal on behalf of the school thanked the Rep.
Sometime last year Bousquet had already presented the school with a desktop and printer.
Bousquet is hoping to present the other two laptops and printers next week God willing.

had to be curtailed to the presentation of two laptops for circumstances beyond Bousquet's control.
Bousquet, arriving at the Reunion Primary School, initially thought that there was no scchool due to the silence which emanated from the structure. But to his suprise he was welcomed upstairs to a thunderous ,Good afternoon Mr. Bousquet!'
The atmosphere was warm, as one could feel an aura of comradry in the air as the pupils performed a welcome song and dance under the supervision of music teacher Gaile Charles.
Bousquet, the experienced politician as he is,went straight into the meet of the matter. He praised everyone for putting on such an elaborate ceremony. Apart from the principal he mentioned two teachers from the school whom he has had dicussions with about future plans for the school. He stressed the importance of discipline to the students and reminded them that 'Education is the Key.'
The principal, Ms. Laffeuille thanked the Rep for his donation and also informed him of the inclusion of a blind child at the school who is doind exceptionally well.
A full coverage of this ceremony will be aired on NTN soon as the GIS team covered the event. The other school which was also presented with a laptop was Rivere Doree Combined.
Look out for the post on Rivere Doree Combined's presentation.

Works are presently ongoing to have the playground completed by the end of February. Arthany, a police officer in the Delcer community has great plans for the playground. He is already planning a cricketorama for the opening ceremony and is working tediously with the youth by helping them form clubs in each little enclave.
He has solicited the services of Dedan Jn. Baptiste, an ex-island cricketer to help with the coaching of the area's cricket team.
