1. Overview

First settled by the French in the early 17th century, the islands represent the sole remaining vestige of France's once vast North American possessions.

CIA's The World Factbook (2013)5

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

There isn't much information in the database for St Pierre & Miquelon, 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.
