The 1997 estimate by the Department of Statistics placed the population at 69,890 and projected a figure of 72,3.These increases are the result of significant inflows of migrants from Guyana, Dominica, and the Dominican Republic.As one moves up the class hierarchy, there is a gradual shift from creole to English as the first language. The cultural symbols that embody the national identity of Antigua and Barbuda emerged out of the anticolonial struggles for political independence, which began in the 1930s.Consequently these symbols tend to be images that celebrate liberation from a number of oppressive conditions and periods in the history of the nation: the ending of slavery in 1834, the rise of the labor movement in the 1930s, the revival of African elements in the national culture during the 1960s, and the still ongoing enhancing of the nation's creole culture vis-á-vis Western and particularly British and American culture.Antigua is an island of both volcanic origin and sedimentary rock (limestone) formation.Its jagged coastline is over 90 miles (145 kilometers) long, producing hundreds of beautiful white sand beaches, bays, and coves. The highest point on the island rises to only 128 feet (39 meters).
It emerged from the mixing of Amerindian (Carib and Arawak), West African, and European (primarily British) cultural traditions.
It very quickly developed a "political arm," which later became the Antigua Labor Party (ALP).
