These summary data are part of a series of information extracted from the concluded US Census 2010. This release is significant compare to previous releases which are on general population, housing count or selected characteristics at general geographic levels. This release has many more levels of geographies that reflect down to the village level. It has a vast array of 121 demographic, social, and economic tabulated tables.
This benefits the CNMI in many ways since not only NMI but all data users can now see important tabulations of poverty statistics present in the Commonwealth, as well as distribution of sex and age of the population, the breakdown of ethnicities, average sized households, median incomes of households and individuals, school enrollment and attainment and a host of other interesting characteristics as stated above.
