While populations in many parts of Spain are falling Murcia is bucking the trend with 15,459 more residents “empadronados” (with padrón) last year than 2009, according to the National Statistics Institute.

According to the report the overall population of Spain increased during 2010, compared to the previous year, by some 275,224 bringing the national figure to more than 47 millions.

The rise in the number of residents of Spain is attributed to immigration and an increased birth rate. However, not all areas are following the national trend with Asturias, Castilla y Leon, Segovia, Burgos, Palencia, Leon and Salamanca registering drops in population.

Increases in the number of people living in Murcia, Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, Malaga and Almeria are largely due to immigration, says the report.

The total number of non Spanish residents in Murcia on September 2010 stood at 207,339 with 55,850 coming from the EU, according to statistics released by the Permanent Observatory of Immigration, a department of the Ministry of Work. Some 44.22% of the non Spanish non EU residents come from South America but the largest single national group comes from Morocco.
