1. Overview

Niue's remoteness, as well as cultural and linguistic differences between its Polynesian inhabitants and those of the rest of the Cook Islands, have caused it to be separately administered. The population of the island continues to drop (from a peak of 5,200 in 1966 to an estimated 1,311 in 2011) with substantial emigration to New Zealand 2,400 km to the southwest.

CIA's The World Factbook (2013)5

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

2. Religion and Beliefs
