Population

In 2017, the population of Puerto Rico was 3,351,827 million. This makes its population density greater than that of any state in the United States of America. The majority of the population is made up of a mix of Africans, Spaniards, Americans and Indians.

Language

Puerto Rico has been officially bilingual since 1898. These languages are Spanish and English. Spanish is generally spoken on the streets.

Religion

85 % of the people of Puerto Rico consider themselves Roman Catholics. There are influences from the old Taino religion and spirituality of the former African slaves. This gives Puerto Rico's Roman Catholicism a special flavour and makes it different from other Catholic communities. The rest of the population is predominantly Protestant, often sectarian.
