Samoa Life




People
The population of Samoa is to be estimated to be 224,713 during the year 1998, giving the country an overall population density of 79 persons per sq km.
The population is unevenly distributed, however, and about two-thirds of the people live on Upolu, primarily in oceanside villages of less than 500 people.
More than 90 percent of the population are Samoans, a Polynesian people. Only about 7 percent of the population consists of other Pacific Islanders, Europeans, and Chinese.

Language
English and Samoan are the official languages, although Samoan is preferred. English is normally only used in business and governmental offices.


Religion
More than 99 percent of Samoans are Christians, with about 60 percent of the people belonging to Protestant denominations, primarily the Congregational Christian and Methodist churches. Roman Catholics make up the next largest Christian group.
