Lineage The dataset is a GIS layer (point data) that identify the location of the settlements and provides for each one the number of inhabitants. Please consider the following warnings when using the data: 1. As the Census is a snapshot in time, usual residents of the Falkland Islands who were overseas on the night of the census may not be captured in the population counts . 2. Similalry, usual residents may have been elsewhere within the Islands on census night and were not captured at their usual place of residence. The impact of this is particulalry evident for locations with small populations, for example the outer islands (not West or East Falklands). 3.The 359 at Mount Pleasant are civilian personnel and their families based at Mount Pleasant Complex (MPC).
