Key facts about Guam

Guam is the southernmost island in the Mariana Islands
Archipelago. Of all the islands in Micronesia, Guam is the
largest in terms of both land area (543 sq km) and population
(over 176,000 in 2008) (26,49). Politically, Guam is considered a U.S. territory and county and is divided into 19 districts (or US. Census Bureau county subdivision equivalents). Tamuning, the third most populated district, is located on the island's western shore. It contains approximately 11% of Guam's population (49) and is home to Guam's primary economic activities, including the tourism industry, Harmon Industrial Park, Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport, and Fort Juan Muna—headquarters of Guam's Army National Guard.
