The population of Negril

by Phillip Johnson
(Jamaica)

QUESTION:


What is Negril's population?




ANSWER: July-28-2009 by Wellesley Gayle



Hi Phillip,

I did some research for you. I haven't found anything conclusive (yet), but enough to give you some insight.

One source reported that it was 4040 in the year 2000, but two other sources claimed it is approximately 3,000. One even reported 25,000! -clearly out of line.

According to an official publication by the Negril Marine Park in 2004 though, the residential population of Negril was 3,469 in 1991 when Jamaica's population was 2,380,666.

I would want to think that just as the national population grew by approximately 21% since, Negril would probably grow by at least that!

Maybe about 4400? I'll try and get some official information though.

I hope that helps in the interim.
Stay in touch.
