By the most recent count (2000) the total population of FSM stands at about 107,000, an increase of about 24,000 since the 1980 census. The State of Chuuk accounts for roughly half the total, at about 53,500. Pohnpei is next at about 34,500. The State of Yap has about 11,200 people, and Kosrae has a population of about 7,700.
Since the Compact of Free Association permits FSM citizens to enter the US freely, to maintain "habitual residence" and to pursue education and employment, upwards of 15,000 Micronesians are currently living in the US - 7,000 in Guam, 3,000 in CNMI, and the rest in Hawaii or on the Mainland. The number who actually emigrate to the US, however, remains relatively low as most FSM citizens eventually return to FSM.
