French Polynesian population up but only by one percent

The latest census for French Polynesia shows an increase in population over the past five years, but the rise has slowed down compared to previous surveys.

The data shows there are 278,786 inhabitants living in the archipelago.

In the past five years the population has increased by 1.01 percent - about 570 additional people per year.

In 2017, there were 275,918 inhabitants, a 2.9 percent increase from the 2012 census.

It also shows an ageing population with people living longer than before.

Reasons for this small increase include lower birth rates and migration.

Not all areas are experiencing the same rate of change in population, however.
