    Niue Introduction - 2002

    SOURCE: 2002 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background 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 about 2,100 in 2002) with substantial emigration to New Zealand, 2,400 km to the southwest.

      NOTE: The information regarding Niue on this page is re-published from the 2002 World Fact Book of the United States Central Intelligence Agency. No claims are made regarding the accuracy of Niue Introduction 2002 information contained here. All suggestions for corrections of any errors about Niue Introduction 2002 should be addressed to the CIA.
