Summary 

The 2010 Northern Mariana Islands Population and Housing Census was conducted as part of the United States Decennial Census, in cooperation with the CNMI government. The 2010 Census of the Pacific Island Areas operated on a different timeline than that of the states, and field work was undertaken by the local census offices, as overseen by the Census Bureau. Residents of the island territories either completed self-administer questionnaires, or were interviewed by enumerators during the data collection period. A feature specific to the 2010 Census of the Pacific Island Areas was the completion of long-form questionnaires only, whereas the stateside census used the short-form. Edits made to the form for the island areas included languages spoken in a household, wording of questions on U.S. Citizenship and birth place, and the receipt of Supplemental Security Income being added to the question on Public Social Assistance or Welfare. The total population of the Northern Mariana Islands in 2010 was 53,883.
