PREFACE

The Bermuda Digest of Statistics was first produced in 1973. The publication provides an annual summary of
various socioeconomic statistics designed for convenient reference. The tables are grouped by theme to form a
total of 13 sections. Unless otherwise stated, the statistics are for Bermuda. Some tables from the previous edition
have been removed because the data is no longer collected or is now in a different format. Similarly,
tables have been modified/ added to this edition to enhance the variety of data provided.
This edition contains analyses and graphs in each section. The aim is to supplement each section of tables by
providing background information on the topic and identifying significant trends in the data that go beyond what
is shown solely by the tables. The graphs serve as a quick way to determine key trends in a visually appealing way.
The name of the department or organization whose reports or published statements were used is noted under
each table. The assistance provided by these organizations is acknowledged gratefully.
The figures in the Digest are mainly annual totals and totals for calendar months. Wherever possible, and space
permitting, series have been provided for the period 2002 to 2012. Figures for earlier years may be found in
previous editions of the Digest.

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

Bermudas Population Grew Slowly


In 2010, the civilian non-institutional population stood at 64,237 and had increased by 4% since
the previous census in 2000. This represents 2 percentage points less growth in the 2010
population than the 6% growth recorded between 1991 and 2000. A combination of trends has
led to slowing population growth in Bermuda; namely, declining birth rates, increasing
emigration and increased life expectancy. The degree to which a population grows or declines
is based on the difference between natural increase (births minus deaths) and net migration
(immigration minus emigration). This calculation is known as the balancing equation.
The most recent data available for the population by parish is the 2010 Population and Housing
Census. This data indicated that 52% of the population were female and 48% were male which
is the same distribution reported in 2000. In terms of race, 60% of the population were black
and 40% were white or other races. The most densely populated parish reported in 2010 was
Pembroke and the least densely populated was St. Georges (Figure 1).
Between 2000 and 2010, the foreign-born population increased by 5%. Although the proportion
had declined, the main source of Bermudas foreign-born population continued to be from the
United Kingdom (Figure 2). During the same period, the Bermuda-born population decreased
by 3% marking the first time that the Bermuda-born population had fallen between 1950 and
2010.
Bermudas Ageing Population
Table 1.3 reveals that children under 15 years comprised a smaller proportion (3 percentage
points less) of the total population in 2010 than in 2000. The reduction in the youth population
during the decade was offset by a 3 percentage point increase in the number of persons 65
years and older due to decreased births and longer life expectancies. In the future, the total
population is expected to continue to age as the baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1964)
reach retirement age. Bermudas population pyramid in 2010 illustrates a sex difference in the
upper age groups which is indicative of longer life expectancies for females (Figure 3).
Number of Births Declines
There was a downward trend in the number of live births since 2008 (Figure 4). The factors
that contributed to this decline could be determined through further study. Throughout the
period, births ranged from 859 in 2007 to a record low of 648 in 2012. The sharpest decline of
99 births occurred between the year 2010 and 2011.
Table 1.7 shows that the majority of babies were born to mothers who were between the ages
of 30-34 years. An analysis of births by natal status, however, indicated that more than half of
babies were born in wedlock and most of their mothers were between 30-34 years old. In
contrast, mothers who had their babies out of wedlock were younger and concentrated in the
25-29 age group.
Deaths Fluctuate
The number of deaths fluctuated over the period and declined by 5% from 2008 to 2012
(Figure 4). Three-quarters of Bermudas deaths occurred in the 65 year and over age group
2

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

(Table 1.15). Although there were more females in the population, there were more male
deaths. This can be attributed to females having a longer life expectancy than males since males
tend to have riskier lifestyles.
Brides Wed Earlier than Grooms
Generally, more than half of the marriages performed in Bermuda were between non-residents
who typically combine weddings with honeymoons. Between 2008 and 2012, the total number
of marriages fell by 17% (Figure 5). Non-residents comprised two-thirds of this decline.
In 2012, brides were more likely to get married at an earlier age (25-29 years) than grooms
(30-34 years). The majority of married couples in that year reported that they had never been
married at the time of marriage (Table 1.8). A comparison of previous marital status by gender
indicates that 69% of brides were never married at the time of marriage, in comparison to 64%
of grooms.
Unreasonable Behaviour Leading Cause of Divorce
The number of divorces granted decreased by 38% from 2008 to 2012 (Figure 5). In 2012, the
majority of divorces occurred within 5 to 9 years of marriage between persons 25-29 years old
who were previously never married. Unreasonable behaviour was cited as the leading grounds
for divorce (Table 1.14).

School Enrolment on the Decline


In Bermuda, it is compulsory for all children aged 5 to 18 years to attend school, unless the
requirements for graduation from senior school have been met at an earlier age. Between 2002
and 2012, males were more likely to attend Government schools and females were more likely
to attend private schools. Both Government school enrolment and private school enrolment
declined from 2002 to 2012, at 15% and 8%, respectively. As students enrolled at tutorial sites
(e.g. home schools) and General Education Diploma (GED) programmes are excluded from the
enrolment tables, it is possible that an increase in enrolment in alternative learning programmes
over the period could be a factor for this reduction. Another possible factor contributing to the
decline in enrolment is the emigration of families as a result of the contraction in the job
market. Also, a minor contributing factor is the 71 person increase in non-tertiary students
studying abroad between the 2000 and 2010 Censuses. This decrease in Government and
private school enrolment is also in alignment with population projections which indicate a
shrinking of the school-age population during this time period.
Loss of Students from Senior Secondary
Over the decade, secondary school enrolment declined by 7% compared to a 14% and 15%
decrease for middle and primary school enrolment, respectively. However, from year to year,
there is a significant drop in the number of students who progress from one class year to the
next at the secondary school level (Figure 1). This trend holds true for both Government and
private schools. The average decline during the period in the number of students from senior
level 1 (S1) to senior level 4 (S4) was 34%. This amounts to the loss of 244 students on average
between S1 and S4 each year. Some of the possible reasons as to why this may be occurring
include: students dropping out, students leaving to study abroad, students emigrating with family
members, students leaving to study in non-traditional school settings (e.g. home schools and
GED programmes), etc. The degree to which each of these factors, amongst others, are
contributing to the exodus of students from S1 to S4 is a potential topic for further study.
Women Outnumber Men 2:1 in Bermuda College Enrolment
Enrolment at the Bermuda College increased by 122% from 2002 to 2012. This may be
explained by the fact that in 2008, the Bermuda Government introduced free tuition for
Bermudians to attend the Bermuda College. This coincided with annual increases in enrolment
from 2008 to 2010. Following the removal of free tuition to a partial subsidy in 2011, enrolment
has declined slightly (Table 2.1).
Further analysis of Bermuda College enrolment highlights the growing disparity in the
proportion of male and female students. The proportion that are female has increased from
58% in 2002 to 69% in 2012 and has remained at 66% or greater since 2004 (Figure 2). This
compares to 52% of the total population that are female. In addition, the gap at the senior
secondary school level is much narrower, as 55% of students were female in 2012. The
Bermuda College enrolment gap between the genders may be another topic for further
investigation.

Ageing Population Leads to Demand for Health Services


Bermudas population is ageing because residents are living longer and are generally in better
health than previous generations. In 1950, life expectancy at birth was 64.85 years and in 2012,
it had risen to 79.76 years. As people live longer, they place increasing demands on the health
care system in terms of infrastructure requirements, access to health care services and
professionals. Together, these factors contribute to rising health care costs.
Continuing Care Unit Near Full Capacity
Bermuda has one general hospital, King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH), one urgent care
centre, Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre, and one psychiatric hospital, Mid-Atlantic Wellness
Institute (MWI). The general hospital provides three service levels of care acute care,
continuing care and hospice care. Table 3.1 shows that the Continuing Care Unit was near full
capacity in 2012 at 97%, as demand for this service remained high over the past ten years. This
compares to decade record low occupancies in 2012 for acute care and hospice care of 62%
and 54%, respectively.
Therapeutic Services Surges
There was a shift away from operations performed on inpatients towards outpatients during
the ten-year period. From 2002/03 to 2011/12, operations performed on inpatients declined by
11% whereas outpatient operations increased by 28%. Computed Axial Tomography (CAT)
scans have more than doubled, from 4,363 in 2002/03 to 9,501 in 2011/12. The number of
patients undergoing speech language pathology skyrocketed over the past decade due to a
change in the reporting methodology from counting patients to counting treatment units. In
addition, the number of persons receiving physiotherapy, speech therapy and occupational
therapy increased significantly due to increased staffing levels.
Emergency Visits on the Rise
In April 2009, the Bermuda Hospitals Board opened the Lamb Foggo Urgent Care Centre in St.
Georges. This facility provides limited emergency services on a part-time basis. To assess the
demand for emergency services, it is essential to combine the visits at KEMH with the Lamb
Foggo Urgent Care Centre. Over the decade, the annual total number of emergency visits has
increased by 24%. Emergency visits peaked in 2011/12 at 39,564 visits and 2003/04 had the
lowest number of visits (31,469) (Figure 1). The rise in the number of emergency visits may be
due to more persons having no health insurance coverage as a result of the economic
downturn in the job market. These uninsured persons may have opted to use emergency
services instead of private doctors. The extent that the recession is contributing to the increase
in emergency visits is a potential area of study.
More Patients are Deinstitutionalized
The psychiatric hospital provides four services: acute care, long-term and rehabilitation,
outpatients and Turning Point (detoxification unit). For the ten-year period, 2002/03 to
2011/12, there were little variations in MWIs bed count for acute care, although the bed count
for the category of long-term and rehabilitation declined by 41% over the period, from 98 to 58
beds (Table 3.2). This occurred as patients were moved to group homes in the community.

Health Personnel Leading Occupation are Nurses


The top three health occupations in 2012 were Professional Nurses (516), Doctors, (187) and
Physiotherapists & Occupational Therapists (87) (Table 3.3). The number of professional
nurses has continued to fall for the third consecutive year and declined by 4% from 2002 to
2012. Conversely, the number of Doctors has increased in recent years, and by 48% over the
eleven-year period. The number of Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists also
increased over the period, by 23%.
Deaths of Males Exceed that of Females
The leading causes of death, for both sexes, were circulatory illnesses and neoplasms1 for the
years 2009 and 2010 (Table 3.4). Together, they represented 61% of all deaths recorded. In
2010, more men than women died in each cause of death category; 2009 had the same trend,
except for respiratory illnesses. Most of the leading causes of death affected persons 65 years
and older. The risk of circulatory diseases is associated with factors such as alcohol
consumption, smoking, obesity and lack of regular exercise. The risk of exposure to cancer
increases with age. In contrast, deaths attributed to accidents and violence was concentrated
primarily among persons aged 25 to 44 years who are more likely to partake in risk-taking
behavior.
Chlamydia Leading Sexually Transmitted Infection
Every year since 2000, more than 500 sexually transmitted infections were reported in
Bermuda. Between 2005 and 2012, almost half of these infections occurred among persons
aged 20-29 and at least 6 out of 10 infected persons were female (Figure 2). Throughout the
period, Chlamydia was the most commonly diagnosed infection and was more prevalent among
females than males (Table 3.5). The proportion of males infected ranged from 24% to 32%.
Over the 8-year period, 2012 saw the lowest number of reported cases (380) while the highest
was in 2007 (540 cases).
Gonococcal infections were the second most commonly reported sexually transmitted
infection. From 2005 to 2012, gonococcal infections have fluctuated from a low of 24 in 2009
to a high of 79 cases in 2011. When averaged over the period, 52% of gonococcal infections
were reported by men. The proportion of male patients with this disease peaked at 79% in
2009, recording the highest level of gonococcal infections by gender for the period.

A neoplasm is an abnormal mass of tissue that results when cells divide more than they should or do not die
when they should. Neoplasms may be benign (not cancer), or malignant (cancer). Also called tumor. Source:

Number of Crimes at Ten Year Low


Between 2003 and 2012, total crime in Bermuda reached its peak in 2008 and then decreased
each year until it reached its lowest level in 2012. There was a 28% drop in total crime from
2008 to 2012 and a 9% decline from 2011 to 2012. As indicated by Figure 1, the sharp fall in
Crimes Against Property (-36%) from 2008 to 2012 was largely responsible for the reduction in
total crime over this period.
Leading Category of Crime is Against Property
Figure 2 shows that Crimes Against Property had the largest share of total crime throughout
the decade. However, over time the proportion has decreased from 70% in 2003 to 64% in
2012. As a result, the other two categories of Crimes Against Persons and Crimes Against the
Community have each gained 3 percentage points in their share of total crime over the period.
Leading Specific Crime are Residential Burglaries
The three leading specific types of crimes in 2012 were Residential Burglaries, Motor Vehicle
Theft and Theft of Property. Combined, these three crimes comprised nearly half (48%) of all
crimes. However, the greatest increases from 2011 to 2012 occurred in crimes of Indecency
(+29%), Non-Residential Burglaries (+12%) and Anti-Social Behaviour (+6%). On the other
hand, Firearm Offenses (-50%), Tourist Accommodation Burglaries (-35%) and Murders (-25%)
had the greatest decreases.
More Cannabis Seized than Any Other Drug
Drug seizures decreased 40% from 2011 to 2012 and they most often came from the streets
(71%) followed by at port (28%) (Table 4.2). Of the $14.62 million worth of drugs seized, 81%
was from cannabis, followed by cocaine (17%).

Number of Jobs Decline


According to the Employment Survey conducted by the Department of Statistics, there were
35,443 occupied jobs in 2012 (Table 5.1). This figure was down 4, 770 jobs (9%) from the year
2008 due to the economic downturn. Of all jobs in 2012, 71% were filled by Bermudians and an
equal share (50%) was held by men and women.
Dominant Industrial Sectors
In 2012, the top three industries of employment in Bermuda were Public Administration,
International Business Activities and Education, Health and Social Work, respectively (Table
5.1). The Public Administration sector accounted for 4,298 filled jobs in 2012, a modest
increase of 14 jobs (0.3%) from the 4,284 jobs reported in 2011. Bermudians were
concentrated in the Public Administration, Education, Health and Social Work, and Business
Services sectors (Table 5.2). Conversely, their non-Bermudian counterparts were engaged
primarily in International Business Activities, Education, Health & Social Work and the Business
Services sectors.
An analysis by gender shows that men were concentrated in the Public Administration,
Construction and Business Activities sectors, respectively. In contrast, females were employed
primarily in Education, Health and Social Work, Public Administration and International
Business Activities.
Leading Occupations
Overall, the leading occupations in 2012 were Service Workers, Shop and Market Sales
Workers, Professionals and Senior Officials and Managers. Men were concentrated in Senior
Officials and Managers, Service Workers, Shop and Market Sales Workers and Craft and
Related Trades Workers occupational groups (Table 5.3). In contrast, women were employed
primarily as Clerks, Professionals and Service Workers, Shop and Market Sales Workers.
Of persons holding posts within the Armed Forces, Skilled Agricultural and Fishery Workers,
and Crafts and Related Trades Workers categories, over 90% were men. More than half of
Clerks, Professionals and Service Workers, Shop and Market Sales Workers were women
(Figure 2).
Work Permits
Between 2002 and 2007, there was a steady rise in the number of work permits issued (Figure
3). In 2008, after the onset of the economic recession, there was a shift in this trend and total
work permits declined until 2010 and rebounded the following year. This fluctuating trend was
influenced primarily by the issuance of 3 month work permits and 2 to 5 year work permits
(Table 5.7).

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

The Purpose of the CPI


Generally, there tends to be a correlation between prices and wages. Prices affect our daily
living in countless ways, from buying groceries to paying bills. Our wages allow us to purchase
a selection of preferred goods and services. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) monitors
changing prices and is used by a variety of stakeholders. For example, employers and unions use
the CPI to negotiate wages and salaries, while home owners use it to adjust rental agreements.
Insurance premiums, pensions, alimony and child support are also often tied to movements in
the CPI.
The CPI is a measure of changes in the average price of consumer goods and services
purchased by households. It is the best economic indicator to determine the effect of changes
in retail prices on the average household budget. A rise in the level of prices of goods and
services over time is referred to as inflation. The inflation rate is the percentage rate of change
in price level over time. The index has been revised four times since it was re-established in
Bermuda in 1961, having been discontinued at the end of World War II. The current index is
based on a basket of goods and services derived from the results of the 2004 Household
Expenditure Survey (HES). The basket is due to be updated again shortly after the conduct of
the 2013 HES. It is important to update the basket every decade because spending patterns
change over time as new items enter the market, such as iPads, Kindles, etc. Bermudas CPI
basket is comprised of the following nine expenditure categories:

Food
Rent
Clothing and Footwear
Tobacco and Liquor
Fuel and Power
Household Goods, Services and Supplies and Communications
Transport and Vehicles
Education, Recreation and Reading
Health and Personal Care

Fluctuating Annual Inflation Rate


Between 2002 and 2012, Bermudas annual inflation rate reached a high of 4.8% in 2008,
followed by a low of 1.8% the following year (Figure 1 and Table 6.1). This drop largely
occurred as the Fuel & Power and Transport & Vehicle sectors shifted from inflation in 2008 to
deflation in 2009. The annual average index for all items in 2002 was 88.3; in 2012 it stood at
119.6, posting an increase of 35%.
Fuel & Power Sector Prices Increase the Most
Figure 2 and Table 6.1 shows that while the annual rate of inflation in 2012 was 2.4%, price
changes varied significantly by sector. For example, the Fuel & Power sector led the way with a
9.3% increase, compared to the Rent sector which increased marginally by 0.2%.

Governments Expenditure Exceeds Revenue


For the tenth consecutive year, Bermuda Governments revenue has fallen short of its
expenditure (Figure 1). The last time revenue exceeded expenditure was in the 2002/03 fiscal
year. In the 2012/13 fiscal year, expenditure was 19% or $172 million higher than revenue. The
primary component of total revenue during the past fiscal year was payroll tax (34%) and wages
and salaries were the single largest item of expenditure, comprising 39% of the total.
Bermuda Monetary Authoritys Balance Increases Over Decade
From 2002 to 2012, total assets, liabilities, capital and reserves increased by 52%, balancing at
$177.4 million. However, there was a 3% decline from 2011 to 2012. In 2012, securities
contributed the most to total assets (54%). On the liabilities, capital and reserves section of the
balance sheet, notes and coins in circulation comprised the majority of the total (73%).
Corporation of Hamiltons Expenditure Exceeds Revenue Recently
The Corporation of Hamiltons revenue exceeded expenditure from 2002 to 2007 but fell
short of expenditure between 2008 and 2012 (Figure 2). In 2012, expenditure was 14% or $3
million higher than revenue. One of the factors contributing to the shortfall of revenue in 2012
was the cessation of collecting wharfage fees. The most significant contributor to total revenue
in 2012 was taxes (39%) and staff costs were the largest item of expenditure, comprising 35% of
the total.
Corporation of St. George Revenue and Expenditure Decline
Figure 3 shows a trend of decreasing revenues and expenditures since 2004 for the
Corporation of St. George; revenue declined by 36% and expenditure by 29%. The Corporation
of St. George was no longer able to collect wharfage in 2012 due to the introduction of the
Municipalities Reform Bill 2010 (Table 7.4). As a result, the Bermuda Government increased
significantly the grants provided to the Corporation in 2012 in an attempt to lessen this impact.
However, the increase in grants did not offset the removal of wharfage collection, as revenue
fell by 24% from 2011 to 2012. Wharfage had typically been the largest contributor to total
revenue, however, this changed in 2012 with government transfers comprising 77% of total
revenue.
For the years 2004 to 2007, significant capital outlays were made relating to damage sustained
from Hurricane Fabian. These capital outlays stopped in 2008 and contributed to a reduction in
total expenditure since (Figure 3). Staff and office expenses were the largest expense item in
2012 at 75% of total expenditure.
Combined Balance Sheets of Commercial Banks and Deposit Companies
The total assets and liabilities of commercial banks and deposit companies increased by 29%
from 2002 to 2012. The largest asset item was loans and advances, making up 37% of the total
assets. Demand deposits were the most significant contributor to total liabilities, comprising
40% of the total.

Nearly Three Quarters of Companies are Exempted


The majority of businesses in Bermuda were exempted companies at the end of 2012. Between
2006 and 2008, the total number of registered companies increased steadily and then fluctuated
during Bermudas recessionary period (Figure 4). From 2006 to 2012, the number of registered
companies increased by 8% (or 1,384 companies).

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

Nominal GDP Declining


The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) measures the total value of goods and services produced
in a country. Nominal GDP uses current (or market) prices (inflation not factored) to value the
production of goods and services. Although, Bermudas nominal GDP increased by 22% from
2004 to 2012, nominal GDP has declined each year since 2008 (Figure 1). This decrease
coincides with the start of Bermudas recession. The three largest contributors to Bermudas
nominal GDP in 2012 were International Business Activity, Real Estate & Renting Activities and
Financial Intermediation, representing 25%, 17% and 13% of the total, respectively.
Real GDP Declining
Real GDP uses a constant price level (inflation factored) to value the production of goods and
services. Real GDP allows economists to determine whether production of goods and services
has increased or decreased without having to consider any change in the purchasing power of
the currency. As with nominal GDP, real GDP increased each year from 2004 to 2008 and then
declined every year since. Real GDP decreased by 4% over the entire period. As with nominal
GDP, International Business Activity, Real Estate & Renting Activities and Financial
Intermediation were the most significant components of real GDP in 2012 at 25%, 18% and
13%, respectively.
Balance of Payments Surplus
The balance of payments measures the surplus or deficit on trade between Bermuda and the
rest of the world. It is used to summarize all international economic transactions for Bermuda
annually and determines the difference between the value of imports and exports.
Table 8.3 shows that employee compensation was the primary contributor to the balance of
payment current account surplus from 2006 to 2012. Employee compensation comprises
largely of receipts by residents in the form of wages and salaries from the international business
sector. Outflows related to transportation were the main factor that offset the current account
surplus.

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

Value of Imports Peak in 2007


Bermuda relies heavily on imported products as few goods are manufactured on the island. In
fact, the value of the islands exports is only 2% of its imports. Figure 1 illustrates that for the
first half of the decade, imports trended upwards followed by a general decline since 2007. In
numeric terms, imports increased by 38% from 2003 to 2007 and then declined by 23% from
2007 to 2012. The reduction in imports coincides with the start of Bermudas recession which
resulted in the contraction in the number of filled jobs and increased emigration.
Leading Commodity Group Imported is Finished Equipment
Finished Equipment (e.g. furniture, books, toys, etc.) held the highest share of the total value of
imports in 2012 at 32%, followed by Food, Beverages & Tobacco (21%) and Machinery (14%)
(Figure 2). In 2003, these were the same three leading categories; however, Food, Beverages &
Tobacco (20%) had the greatest share followed by Machinery (17%) and Finished Equipment
(15%) (e.g. furniture, jewelry, books, etc.).
Most Imports from the United States
The United States is the main source of Bermudas imports. In 2012, the United States
contributed 70% of the total imported products followed by Canada (11%) and the United
Kingdom (4%) (Figure 3). As the United States share decreased from 80% of total imports in
2003 to 70% in 2012, other countries gained in their share, most significantly Canada (4% in
2003 to 11% in 2012).
Exports Peak in 2009
Bermuda exports rum and re-exports pharmaceutical products. Exports were at their highest
during the period 2006 to 2009, after which exports decreased sharply. There was a 49% drop
in the value of exported goods in 2010 and a further 8% reduction in 2011, however the value
of exported goods in 2012 increased by 20%.

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

Registered Roads Vehicles Decline


The total number of registered road vehicles has fallen by 3,412 (7%) from 2009 to 2012
(Figure 1). This trend holds true for 10 out of the 15 vehicle categories. The biggest
contributing factors for the decline between 2009 and 2012 were the decreases in Auxiliary
Cycles, Private Cars and Motor Cycles & Scooters, respectively. Together they comprised 87%
of the total decline. Auxiliary cycles have decreased partly due to closures of livery (rental)
cycle businesses as a result of declining tourism arrivals. In particular, the number of tourists
dropped significantly in the last year, especially for cruise passenger arrivals (see Visitor Arrivals
Table 11.1). Coupled with declining tourism figures, Bermudas job market has contracted due
to the economic downturn. Bermudians and non-Bermudians have been affected by
unemployment and some have left the island to seek opportunities elsewhere which reduced
the need for registered vehicles. Alternatively, some are financially unable to license their
vehicles due to job losses.
Decreasing Accidents
Reports of road traffic accidents have also declined during the past two years, by 17% (Figure
2). This decline may be due to a number of factors, such as fewer vehicles on the roads, road
safety education, legislation, etc. For example, in 2010, the Amendment to the Road Traffic Act,
1947 banned the use of cellular phones and other hand-held electronic devices while operating
a motor vehicle. This law amendment may have had an impact on the lower number of
reported road traffic accidents.
The highest number of road traffic accidents reported during the 11-year period was in 2004
(3,078) and the lowest was in 2012 (1,837). Historically, most of these accidents involved
private cars followed by motorcycles, then trucks. Inattention and inexperience have been the
leading causes of road traffic accidents since 2002 (Table 10.4). However, 2012 saw record
lows in these categories for the period; inattention (547) and inexperience (201), respectively.
Nevertheless, these two causes still represented 57% of all accidents in 2012. There were 9.0
fatalities as a result of traffic accidents in 2012 which is lower than the 11-year average of 10.7
(Table 10.5).
Shipping Arrivals on the Decline
From 2002 to 2012, the number of overseas shipping vessels arriving in Bermuda has decreased
by 17% (Table 10.8). This decrease reflects the fewer number of yachts arriving. Although the
number of vessels arriving in the Hamilton (the major sea port of entry) decreased by 5% from
2011 to 2012, more vessels still arrive there than St. Georges or Dockyard.
Fewer Passengers
Table 10.9 shows the general trend of a decline in airline passengers arriving on the island since
2007. This could be due to a combination of reasons such as the global economic slowdown,
the expense of visiting and staying in Bermuda, more competition from other destinations, etc.
A 14% decline was recorded from 2007 to 2008, the greatest decline over the 11 year period.

Incoming Airmail Fluctuates Greatly


The weight of air cargo arriving in Bermuda has steadily fallen since 2008 by a total of 36%
(Table 10.9). From 2002 to 2012, airmail coming to the island increased by 51% but fluctuated
over the period. Figure 3 shows that inbound airmail had a drastic dip 2004 to 2005, then an
upsurge from 2008 to 2009. Outbound airmail, however, leveled out from 2007 to 2012.

Cruise Arrivals Surpass Air Arrivals Since 2006


Total visitor arrivals fluctuated over the time period 2003-2012 (Figure 1). However, there was
an increase in visitor arrivals over the period of 26% and the number of visitors in 2012 was 7%
higher than the ten-year average of 571,878. The number of cruise ship visitors surpassed air
visitors from 2006 onwards resulting in a 67% growth over the period. In contrast, air arrivals
declined by 10% over this ten-year period.
Most Visitors from the United States
In 2012, 83% of all visitors were from the United States (Figure 2). However, this share
comprised 72% of air arrivals compared to 89% for cruise arrivals. Residents of Canada were
the second largest contributor to total visitors, representing 8%. Nearly three times as many
Canadian visitors arrived by air (13%) than cruise ship (5%).
July Most Popular Month for Visitors
Figure 3 shows that the peak visitor arrivals in 2012 were in July (17%) and the fewest visitors
arrived in January (1%). The number of visitors increased each month until July, at which point
arrivals decreased for the remainder of the year. Furthermore, April, September and October
represented months of transition from the off-season (November-March) to the peak season
(May-August).

Total rainfall: 49.27 inches

2013 BERMUDA DIGEST OF STATISTICS DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS

Main Source of Water Supply is Rainwater


In 2008, two-thirds of water supplied to Bermudas residences was from rainwater 1 . The
remaining one-third was sourced from piped water, trucked water and private wells. The 2010
Census data indicates that 52% of households relied solely on stored tank water and 30%
supplemented stored tank water with fresh water, salt water or brackish wells. As Bermuda
relies heavily on rainfall to meet its water needs, the following analysis focuses on rainfall trends
over the decade 2003-2012.
Rainfall Since 2010 Below Average
Rainfall in 2012 amounted to 49.27 inches, well below the ten-year average of 53.72 inches
(Figure 1 and Table 12.1). The number of rain days in a given year does not have a bearing on
the number of inches of rain. For example, there were 183 rain days in 2006 (highest year in
inches) and 182 rain days in 2011 (lowest year in inches). However, despite there being only
one extra rain day in 2006 than 2011, there was 21.58 inches more rain in 2006.
Most Rainfall in August; Least in December
Figure 2 shows that, on average, the wettest month is August (11.4% of annual rainfall) and that
December is the driest (6.2% of annual rainfall). However, 2012 deviated from this trend as
September had the most rainfall (18.8% of annual rainfall) and March the least (1.6% of annual
rainfall). This information can be used to plan for when additional sources of water may be
required to supplement rainwater reserves.

Electricity Consumption Declines Post 2009


Electricity consumption in Bermuda has risen steadily from 574.7 million kilowatts (kWh) in 2002 to
a record high of 656.1 million kWh in 2009 (Figure 1 and Table 13.3). After 2009, local
consumption of electricity declined each year to 606.3 million kWh in 2012. According to the
Ascendant Group Limiteds Annual Report 2012, the amount of electricity consumed on the island
declined, As the economy of Bermuda has weakened since 2009, core electricity sales have been
adversely affected. BELCOs customer base is decreasing due to the departure of the nonBermudian labour force, as companies moved operations out of Bermuda or significantly reduced
staffing.1 The report also cited other factors contributing to the decline in electricity consumption
such as customers conserving energy and therefore reducing consumption.
Gross Receipts from Electricity Consumption Fluctuates
Between 2002 and 2012, there was an increase of 87% in total gross receipts in electricity
consumption. The total gross receipts were $249.5 million in 2012 and $133.2 million in 2002,
(Figure 2). During this period, gross receipts from residential consumption of electricity increased
steadily from $50.7 million in 2002 to peak at $72.7 million in 2010 (Table 13.4). Subsequently,
gross receipts from residential consumption of electricity declined and stood at $67.2 million in
2012. Similarly, gross receipt totals from commercial electricity consumption rose from $58.1
million in 2002 to $69.9 million in 2009, and declined thereafter.
Fuel Adjustment Gross Receipts Respond to Oil Prices
One of the factors that contributes to the cost of electricity is the fuel adjustment. The fuel
adjustment cost is comprised of the market price of oil, transport cost, customs duty and projected
usage. There has been a marked increase in fuel adjustment gross sales from $15.5 million in 2002
to $104.1 million in 2012 (Table 13.4). Notably, fuel adjustment gross receipts reached an all-time
high in 2012. However, the largest annual increase in the fuel adjustment occurred in 2008 (+79%).
Net Price of Residential Electricity Nearly Doubles
The residential net price for electricity has nearly doubled in the last decade from 22.79 cents per
kWh in 2002 to 44.93 cents per kWh in 2012 (Table 13.4 and Figure 3). In contrast, the commercial
net price for electricity cost rose by 68% from 21.70 cents per kWh in 2002 to 36.49 cents per
kWh in 2012. The highest commercial net price was recorded at 39.92 cents per kWh in 2011.
