Guam - The island's census designated places (CDPs) have increased from 32 in the year 2000 to 57 in 2010. According to Bureau of Statistics and Plans director Tom Morrison, the northern and central villages were most affected. "What's important is to understand that what the Census Bureau is doing is treating these areas as distinct entities, and by publishing population, housing, socioeconomic statistics with these CDPs basically now it makes these areas more eligible for federal funding," he explained.

Some examples of CDPs for 2010 include Liguan, Adacao, Oka, Tumon, Upper Tumon, and Wusstig. Morrison adds that a Guam demographic profile will be released in the summer of 2012. To view Guam's CDP counts, visit Census.gov
