Be comforted in the fact that only 99 of the islands have populations listed on wikipedia, with the 100th (Duke Island, Alaska) having a question mark and no number in the population column. Therefore, my current data lists approximately 34 percent have no population.
I'm particularly interested in the one person who is listed as a resident of Seguam Island, an 80-square mile island that is way out in the Aleutians. What is this person's story? Is he/she an antisocial Aleut? A lone military person in a remote lookout spot? A castaway that people refuse to rescue but still send a census form to? I really want to know.
