According to watchtutorials, the population of Micronesia is estimated to be around 539,000 people. The majority of the population is located on the islands of Chuuk, Pohnpei, and Kosrae. However, there are also large populations living in Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. The population is comprised mainly of indigenous people who identify as Micronesian and speak one or more of the native languages. There are also smaller groups of people who have migrated from other countries such as the Philippines, China, Japan, and America. The population growth rate in Micronesia has been steadily increasing since 1980 with an average annual growth rate of 2%. This is mainly due to a high fertility rate which stands at an average 4 children per woman. A vast majority of the population is concentrated in urban areas with over 80% living in urban areas across all islands. This trend has been increasing over time due to migration from rural areas to more urban ones. The official language spoken by most citizens is English but many native languages are still spoken including Chuukese, Yapese, Kosraean and Pohnpeian amongst others. Education on each island also varies with each island having its own system for primary and secondary education as well as post-secondary education available at some universities such as Palau Community College or University of Guam.
