Like most countries in the region, Grenada is densely
populated. In 2019, the average population density was 323
residents per km2. As a result of extensive
emigration, Grenada has a weak population growth. The
country's largest city is the capital of Saint George's
(3,000 residents, 2012).
Countryaah, English is an official language and is widely spoken in
the country, though usually in Creole form. A memory of the
time under French rule is the French-based Creole language
with African elements of which remains of the elderly
population can still be found in the countryside.
Since the Spanish colonial church dominated Catholicism,
but in later English colonial rule, Anglicans and
Presbyterians also came to play a greater role.
Approximately 67% of the population are Catholics, belonging
to the Diocese of Saint George, founded in 1956. Ecumenical
cooperation between Protestants and Catholics exists, but in
a tension with the rapidly growing evangelical groups. The
collaboration takes place in the Caribbean Council of
Churches. Afro-Indian religious traditions are
practiced in the Carriacou cult.
