Quick Stats

Some quick stats from the CIA Factbook:

  • Land Area: 300,000 square kilometers
  • Coastline: 36,000 kilometers
  • Population: 102 million (July 2011 estimate)
  • Median Age: 23 years

Did you know that Palawan is the largest province in the Philippines? The following stats came from Wikipedia & the country’s National Statistics Office:

  • Area: 17,000 square kilometers
  • Population: 900,000 (August 2007)
  • Population of Puerto Princesa: 220,000 (August 2007)

What about the rest of the province, i.e., excluding Puerto Princesa? Again, according to the NSO, the two most and two least populous municipalities are:

  • Narra: 63,000
  • Brooke’s Point: 62,000
  • El Nido: 30,000
  • Balabac: 30,000

One surprising statistic: the median age in Palawan is only 18 years!
