Samoa's population has increased in the past six years by four percent, to 205,557.

The official report of the Samoa Population Housing Census 2021 released by the Samoa Bureau of Statistics shows that Upolu Island continues to have the largest share of the country's population with 78 percent, or 160,334 people.

Faleata on Upolu is the most populated among the 51 political districts, and Falealupo on Savai'i is the least populated, having 0.4 per cent of the population.

The report shows 51 percent of Samoans are male and 49 percent are female. But in terms of life expectancy women are living longer than men - 77 years compared to 74 years for males.

The median or average age of the total population was 22 years reflecting a youthful Samoan population.

It said the youthful population indicated continuous demands for developments catering for the needs of the young population such as education, health, and employment opportunities.
