MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT


The University of the Virgin Islands takes pleasure in the release of the 1995
Statistical Yearbook of the Virgin Islands. As part of our mission of public service
to the community, the University strives to meet a broad variety of public need in
the statistical data area.

This document is intended to provide, between one set of covers, essential baseline
data that can inform decision making, planning and policy formulation both in the
public and private sectors.

By this effort, the University aspires to begin a series of similar publications that
will continually update its users with statistical data.

Please send your comments and suggestions for improvement of this publication to
the Eastern Caribbean Center.

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR


The 1995 Statistical Yearbook of the Virgin Islands is offered as a reference tool
for agencies and individuals inside and outside of the Territory that are in need of
basic data concerning the US Virgin Islands. This publication is a historic
accomplishment for the Territory, in that for the first time, accurate basic data on a
wide range of topics including population, education, housing, finance, revenue
and budget, tourism and crime, have been detailed in one single publication. The
Yearbook is viewed as one of the major achievements of the University's Research
Institute in the Eastern Caribbean Center, mainly because of its potential value to
the capacity building efforts of the Territory.

Dr. Frank Mills, Mr. Basil Ottley and Ms. Carmen Rogers-Green are to be
commended for their very professional efforts and for the dedication that was
necessary to make the yearbook a reality. This publication helps the Eastern
Caribbean Center to fulfill its mission of providing scientific and accurate
information in support of rational development in the U.S. Virgin Islands and the
rest of the Caribbean. It is our sincere wish that the data provided here will support
and advance the type of decision-making needed to promote a sustainable society
in the Virgin Islands.

FORWARD


Some year ago, representatives of statistical offices of the Insular Areas of the United States met
at a meeting at the East West Center. It was then suggested that each of the areas should begin a
series of statistical yearbooks for its respective area. At the consistent urging of Dr. Michael
Levin of the Population Division of the Bureau of the Census, we are finally able to produce
such a document. This publication has only been made possible through the substantial support
of the Office of Insular Affairs, Department of the Interior, particularly with the assistance of its
director, Allen Stayman, and economist Richard Miller.

In this first effort, we have aspired to compile a comprehensive set of statistical
tables covering such topics as population, vital statistics, education, labor force and
employment, household and personal income, rime, tourism, housing, motor
vehicles, finance and revenue and budget. We hope that this will meet many of the
needs of the local public and nonpublic sectors, as well as federal officials and off-
island businessmen who constantly use these data.

We also urge users of this document to share with us their comments on how we
might improve the usefulness of the publication in the subsequent series.
