Guadeloupe Population


Guadeloupe's estimated population is 452,776 (July 2006 est.), most of whom live in Basse-Terre (est. over 200,000) and Grande-Terre (est. over 200,000). About 3,000 people live in Les Saintes, 1,600 on La Désirade, and 13,000 on Marie-Galante.

French censuses do not record ethnicity, so estimates of the percentages of Guadeloupe ethnic composition vary. Guadeloupeans are primarily of African heritage from the Guinean coast mixed with some French ancestry. According to the CIA Worldfactbook, July 2006 estimates were Black/Mulatto at 75% of the population, White at 11%, Tamil and East Indians at 9%, Lebanese and Syrians at 3%; while Chinese and 'others' composed 2% of the population. There are small numbers of immigrants from various Caribbean islands, mainly from Haiti and Dominica.
