The majority of the population live in the coastal areas and the main valleys of much of St. Vincents interior. The population is estimated (1998) to be 119,818, with about a quarter of the people living in the capital, Kingstown and its suburbs, while approximately 8% live within the Grenadine islands. Most of the people are of African decent, with a small percentage of Amerindian/black, European, East Indian and Carib (descent) people.
English is the dominant and official language of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. For everyday use, however, most Vincentians speak a local dialect, called Vincentian English or Vincy English.
Christianity is an important part of most Vincentians lives. The largest segment of the population is Methodist, followed by other Protestant religions, plus a small Roman Catholic population.
