About the District of Columbia and territories

The District of Columbia and the inhabited U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa) are not formally US states, but their residents are American citizens (except for American Samoa — people born in American Samoa are non-citizen U.S. nationals).[9] Puerto Rico has a higher population than 21 US states, while D.C. has a higher population than 2 states.

  1. ^ The U.S. Census Bureau collects data for the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico every year (in American Community Survey estimates). However, the U.S. Census Bureau collects data for American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands only once every 10 years.[2]
  2. ^ Territories data (except Puerto Rico) is from 2010.
  3. ^ Data for American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands is from the 2010 U.S. Census (American FactFinder). Puerto Rico data is from the 2013-2017 American Community Survey 5-year estimates.
