People, Languages & Religions in Anguilla
 
 
 

People

According to the 2001 census, 72% of the population is Anguillian while 28% is non-Anguillian. Of the non-Anguillian population, many are citizens of the United States, United Kingdom, St Kitts & Nevis, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Nigeria.

2006 and 2007 saw an influx of large numbers of Chinese, Indian and Mexican workers, brought in as labour for major tourist developments due to the local population not being large enough to support the labour requirements.

Languages

While many of the islands in the Caribbean have strong Dutch or French roots, Anguilla is a part of the British West Indies and retains the language of those who settled there over 400 years ago. Although English is the official language of Anguilla, there's a significant West Indian accent within the language.

Religions

In the present day, the population of Anguilla practices several different organised religions, and the islanders are largely of the Christian faith. There is a church almost every two miles on the island. The majority of the people on the island are Anglican, which makes up 40% of the people's religion. The next most popular denomination on Anguilla is Methodist, which accounts for approximately 33% of religion on the island.

Other religions that have found a home on the island are Seventh Day Adventists, Baptists, Roman Catholic, and miscellaneous religious practices.
