Statistical Yearbook

 “It is with great pleasure that I present the 2016 Statistical Yearbook for the territory of American Samoa, prepared by the Statistics Division of the Department of Commerce.

The 2016 Statistical Yearbook is the thirty-sixth annual edition of the publication, which details hundreds of historic economic and social characteristics of the territory. With comprehensive data on population, health, education, law enforcement, climate, land use, mitigation, trade, government finances, prices, employment, agriculture, utilities, and national accounts, the Statistical Yearbook has long been a popular publication among policymakers, business leaders, and civil organizations. 

The collection and analysis of the raw data summarized in this Statistical Yearbook would not be possible without the cooperation of the many local and federal government agencies, private businesses, and other individuals. The Statistical Division wishes to express their deepest appreciation to those that have contributed to this Statistical Yearbook.

Additionally, I highly value the input from those that submitted feedback on previous editions of the Statistical Yearbook. We continually strive to ensure that the content in this publication is useful and informative. I welcome any comments, concerns, or suggestions for future improvements. A comment form has been provided at the end of this book for this purpose.”
