1. Overview

The US annexed the reef in 1922. Its sheltered lagoon served as a way station for flying boats on Hawaii-to-American Samoa flights during the late 1930s. There are no terrestrial plants on the reef, which is frequently awash, but it does support abundant and diverse marine fauna and flora. [...] Managed by the Fish and Wildlife Service of the US Department of the Interior.

CIA's The World Factbook (2013)5

As a territory of the USA I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.

There isn't much information in the database for Kingman Reef, 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.
