About Washington, D.C. and territoriesEdit

Washington, D.C. and the inhabited U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa) are not formally U.S. states, but their residents are U.S. citizens (except for American Samoa — people born in American Samoa are non-citizen U.S. nationals).[9] Puerto Rico has a higher population than 21 U.S. states, while Washington, D.C. has a higher population than 2 U.S. states.

However, the U.S. Census Bureau collects data for American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands only once every 10 years.[2]
  2. ^ Territories data (except Puerto Rico) is from 2010.
  3. ^ Data for American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands is from the 2010 U.S. Census (American FactFinder). Puerto Rico data is from the 2013-2017 American Community Survey 5-year estimates.
