The 2001 Population and Housing Census was undertaken as part of the Year 2000 Round of Population and Housing Censuses for the Carribean Region. The Turks and Caicos Islands is a member of the CARICOM Regional Census Coordinating Committee.
Through this mechanism, participating countries have agreed to collaborate with regard to census methodology and procedures and the type of tables and statistics to be disseminated. Census day was 10th September, 2001. This is the reference point for which all the statistics provided by members of private households and institutions in response to questions contained in the Census Questionnnaires relate.  [Read more...]

 

The regular surveys being done by the Office are as follows:
The Survey of Business Establishments is an annual survey conducted by the Statistical Office. This Survey is designed to collect important information on the financial operations of all business activities conducted in the Islands.  [Download brochure here]
   
The Survey of Departing Visitors is conducted by the Statistical Office in Collaboration with the Turks and Caicos Islands Tourist Board. This was developed to supplement the Tourism statistics provided by the Tourist Board. The last survey was administered in June 2004 at the Departure Lounge of Providenciales International Airport. It is planned to conduct this survey on a quarterly basis in succeeding years. [Read more...]

Aside from the regular surveys, the Office also assists and provides technical support in other surveys/studies conducted by other government departments.




The highest point in the Turks and Caicos Islands is located in the uninhabited island of East Caicos. On the north of East Caicos is Flamingo Hill with an elevation of 156 feet, while the dangerous Philips Reef guards the coast. The island is also best known for its plantation ruins and cave artwork.
