Q: How Many People Live in the South Sandwich Islands?

South Sandwich Islands have been uninhabited since 1982, but the islands and South Georgia have a combined average population of only 30 people. However, none of these individuals are native-born, and no one is given the status of a permanent resident. Approximately 67 percent of these temporary inhabitants live in Grytviken, South Georgia. The remainder of the people who reside part-time in this area are part of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), and they live at King Edwards Point.
