Fuerteventura population

Fuerteventura's growth skyrockets with 4,531 more registered residents in one year.

It is the island with the highest growth in percentage numbers of the entire archipelago, by far

The island of Fuerteventura is the one that grows the most in population of the entire archipelago in percentage terms, to such an extent that it is the second fastest growing in total numbers, data that is "frightening" if you look at it in retrospect.

At the moment the island has 124,152 inhabitants, and according to the census updated on January 1, 23, the island has gained 4,531 residents in one year. In terms of official figures, the informal ones may be higher. This is a growth rate of around 4% per year, and it will continue to grow.

To give you an idea, if the Spanish state grew at 4% per year, each year the country would have 1.8 million new people registered each year. Untenable.

Tenerife, which is the only island that surpasses Fuerteventura in total numbers, grew by 14,367 people, but very far away in percentage terms, since with 1.5% more it consolidates itself as the most populous island of the Canary Islands with 954,000 inhabitants.

Population changes in the rest of the archipelago continue to rise, but at lower levels. In this way, Gran Canaria has 4,418 more people in the census (below Fuerteventura in total numbers), Lanzarote grows by 3,161, La Palma 332 more residents, La Gomera 358 and El Hierro 242.

Is that really a problem? I suspect if you took tourist numbers and divided by 50 (making a broad assumption that people stay for one week) the average population increase would surely surpass that.

I guess the answer is it depends whether the Government is willing to invest in the infrastructure to support it! Many relatively empty places would give their eye teeth for a net increase in migration, especially when that includes the affluent 'silver haired' market.
