Last census in 2005 claimed the Niue population was at 1700 but that was unreliable because it was during a period of cyclone rebuilding when Niue had a large number of contractors ashore. The statistics department also count people who have left recently many of whom don't return. There is a tendan…cy to over estimate the population for aid purposes.. An honest concensus by business leaders estimates the current population at between 1000 and 1100, about 100 being non Niuean (MORE)
Like all Polynesian people, niueans love to celebrate. A major event for teenage boys is their "haircutting ceremony". Many boys keep a long tail of hair since childhood and this is ritually removed at a gathering held at the boys home, usually on a Saturday. Guests involved to the feast contrib…ute considerable amounts of food and money to a fund that goes to the boy after expenses are paid. The pastor and close family members cut locks of hair that have been tied with ribbon, and everyone sits down at the following feast. (MORE)

10.7% (2006) I don't know where this 10% came from.

There is no real unemployment in Niue. Subsistence agriculture and fi…shing are gainfully undertaken by a very small percentage of those not employed by the government or private sector. In a population of 1200 there wouldn't be 1% who don't partake in any of these forms of employment. (MORE)
