HAVANA TIMES – Cuba’s National Bureau of Statistics and Information published today a summary of the final results of some indicators investigated in the Population and Housing Census in 2012.
The census confirms the trend of population aging on the island, and the reduction of its total population, now 11,167,325 inhabitants, less than a decade ago.
The statistics also reveal that the country increased the number of homes in some 354 000, compared to the previous census in 2002, and currently has 3,882,424 houses and apartments.
The proportion of married adults is 56.8 % nationally, while 21.7% stated they were living together. The indicator does not reflect the status of unions between persons of the same sex, an issue denounced at the time by LGBT activists on the island.
These results are a first preview of the information contained in the census that will be published gradually, said Juan Carlos Alfonso, national Census director at a press conference.
