Ok, except that as Commonwealths, Puerto Rico and CNMI have attained a voluntary, consented, political status validated by the United Nations. 


Also, as per the US State Department's Foreign Affairs Manual, 'Commonwealth' when used in connection with areas under the sovereignty of the USA that are not states of the Union, is the term that "broadly describes an area that is self-governing under a constitution of its adoption".

None of the other territories have adopted their own constitutions.

The rest are Guam with 165K, USVI with 104K, American Samoa with 55K, and CNMI with 53K.  All the other insular areas are uninhabited other than the occasional scientific or military station.
