Balearic population booms compared to rest of Spain


WHILE the population fell across Spain last year, the Balearic Islands was one of just two regions to see an increase in the number of residents.

The growth registered by the National Statistics Institute (INE) in 2014 amounted to 517 new people, reaching a total of more than 1.1 million Balearic residents.

The rest of Spain’s autonomous communities have all experienced a drop in population with the exception of Murcia, where 231 more residents were registered.

Regions with the biggest decrease of population were the Valencian Community, with 27,637 fewer residents by the end of 2014, and Castilla y Leon, where the population fell by 24,049.
