Population peaked in 2018, at approximately 2,150. In total, the three special municipalities forming the Caribbean Netherlands were home to just over 25,000 people in 2019.

 Three special municipalities…

… And three independent Caribbean countries

  Next to the three special municipalities, there are three more islands in the Caribbean with a connection to the Netherlands. Sint Maarten, Aruba and Curaçao are independent countries, but still part of the larger Kingdom of the Netherlands. Of these three islands, Curaçao is the largest, with a population of just under 160,000 in 2019. The population of Aruba amounted to roughly 111,000 in 2017.
