Living in Puerto Rico
Located in the Caribbean Sea, approximately 1,000 miles away from Miami, Florida, Puerto Rico is an unincorporated territory of the United States meaning it is controlled by but not part of the US and is spread across an archipelago of islands. Not all the islands are inhabited, but the main island is mountainous with extensive coastline, as well as more than 50 rivers. The island experiences large amounts of seismic activity as it lies at the boundary between Caribbean and North American tectonic plates, with many geological hazards experienced. The island was colonised for Spain by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and its rule lasted for four centuries, until the Spanish-American War and it became part of the US in 1899. The 3.3 million inhabitants are thus American citizens, but they may not vote in Congress as it is not a state; the residents voted in a referendum with 54% saying they were unhappy with the current system. Despite being known as a large economy, Puerto Rico has a huge amount of public debt and a deficit of over $2 billion. The economy is 46.3% manufacturing, with the service and finance sectors making up the next largest portion of the GDP. The very remote location and the control under the US makes it difficult for Puerto Rico to determine its own prosperity, and its lack of natural resources also makes it difficult to establish a dominant sector.
