Census 2010 reports are being worked on, but the population on census day was 54,397.
In 2009 19% of the population was under 15 years of age, and five percent was over 65. About 49% of the work force were non-Caymanians admitted under the work permit system which controls the inflow of foreign skills and labour. The majority of work permit holders (about 75%) come from Jamaica, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.
