1. Overview

Colonized by English settlers from Saint Kitts in 1650, Anguilla was administered by Great Britain until the early 19th century, when the island - against the wishes of the inhabitants - was incorporated into a single British dependency along with Saint Kitts and Nevis. Several attempts at separation failed. In 1971, two years after a revolt, Anguilla was finally allowed to secede; this arrangement was formally recognized in 1980, with Anguilla becoming a separate British dependency.

2. Anguilla National and Social Development

My Social and Moral Development Index does not have enough data points for Anguilla to produce an accurate ranking. As a territory of the UK I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.

3. Religion and Beliefs

Data from the Pew Forum, a professional polling outfit, states that in 2010 the religious makeup of this country was as follows in the table below6:

Christian90.6%
Muslim0.3%
Hindu0.4%
Buddhist0.1%
Folk Religion2.9%
Jew0.1%

The CIA World Factbook has slightly different data, and states: Protestant 83.1% (Anglican 29%, Methodist 23.9%, other Protestant 30.2%), Roman Catholic 5.7%, other Christian 1.7%, other 5.2%, none or unspecified 4.3% (2001 census)7.

Data Source

There isn't much information in the database for Anguilla, most likely because it is either a part of another country (i.e., a territory or posession) and therefore most international statistics are counted for the country as a whole, or, this is such an exotic place that little data exists about it.
