    There are over 2 million people living in the Arctic.  In Antarctica, there are an average of 3,500 in summer and 1,500 in winter.  There are no indigenous people of Antarctica, as it has too extreme of a climate, and the people that do live there now are generally scientists.  They are not year-long residents, most stay for less than 6 months at a time to work in one of over 40 bases.

    The Arctic is composed of all the Earth that is north of the Arctic Circle.  This includes the Arctic Ocean, parts of Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Russia, Alaska, Sweden, Norway and Finland.

    As the previous poster mentioned, the Arctic is inhabited by several indigenous people, some of which include the Inuit, the Aleut, and a number of (mostly) European immigrants. Alaska’s indigenous population consists of approximately 50,000 people. Russian’s indigenous population accounts for 70,000 people, while Canada’s boasts 50,000. The Arctic’s population far surpasses Antarctica’s residents.
