Logo Censo 2020Aruba is a small island with a total area of 180 km2 and a registered population of 108,166 people as of October 1, 2020 (during the 2020 Census count). The atlas shows the regional distribution of social, demographic, and economic indicators of the population of Aruba.

The maps show that even though Aruba is a small island, there are differences between regions concerning the characteristics of the population.

For effective regional planning, it is essential to pinpoint those regions with particular social and economic characteristics to take adequate actions.
