French Polynesia Life




People
French Polynesia has a population of 219,521, according to the 1996 census, yielding an average population density of 62 persons per sq km.
About three-fifths of the territory's inhabitants live in urban areas, with the largest population concentration in greater Papeete. About a third of the people live in small settlements and rural areas.
Polynesians represent about two-thirds of the population of French Polynesia. About 15 percent are of mixed Polynesian-European or Polynesian-Chinese descent, 10 percent are of French origin, and 5 percent are ethnic Chinese.

Language
Although French and Tahitian are both official languages, French is the language used in government and commerce. Various other Malayo-Polynesian dialects are also spoken, particularly in the outer islands, by the indigenous population.

. English is widely understood, mainly by islanders accustomed to dealing with foreign visitors
