April 21, 2023 -The Department of Statistics (STAT) conducted the 2022 St. Maarten population census. A
census is a general population and housing count and is held every 10 years. During a Census
everyone is counted who, at a specific moment in time (the Census moment), has been living
in St. Maarten for 1 year or longer or who has the intention of living in St. Maarten for 1
year or longer.
Due to various reasons, the census interviewers were unable to reach certain addresses
during the Census period. Therefore, we are going in the field again during this Post Census
period that runs from April 21st – May 31st, 2023. Interviews last about one hour for an
average size family. During this interview, we will cover the following topics: living
accommodation questions, demographics and migration, health, education, labor, and
income. The cooperation of all members of your household is of utmost importance for the
success of the Census 2011.
The Department of Statistics is legally obligated to conduct the Census. As an independent
department of the government, we will not and are in fact not allowed to share any individual
information. The data that we receive will be analyzed and reported in aggregate tables.
Conform the National Ordinance census (AB 2013, GT no. 544), and all information will be
treated confidentially and anonymously and will be processed into statistical data. The
findings of the population census will be disseminated during different organized
community meetings in the second half of this year.
Please call us at the Department of Statistics to arrange an appointment if you have not been
interviewed during the initial Census interviews. The number to reach STAT at is (+1) 721
542-0349/559-7492 or email email@example.com.
