POPULATION

The city of Valencia has a total population today of 800.666 inhabitants and is the centre of an extensive metropolitan area which reaches a million and a half. This represents 18% of the population of the Comunidad Valenciana and is, in terms of population, the third largest city in Spain after Madrid (3.187.06 inhabitants) and Barcelona (1.595.110 inhabitants).

Throughout the twentieth century the city has multiplied its initial population by two or three, with the maximum periods of demographic growth seen during the years 1930-1940 and during the seventies. The nineties were years of demographic stability due to the effect of the decrease in migratory movements, which were a fundamental factor for growth during previous years, and also for the reduction in the birth rate. During the most recent years the strong outside migratory currents have once again been provoking a new dynamic increase in the population.

The progressive increase in life expectancy and the reduction in the birth rate have been reflected in a pyramid of ages that narrows at its base and widens at the top, with an increasing weight of the older generations. Even so, the population of the city continues to be relatively young, with 19% concentrated in the generations aged 15 to 29, and 33% in the 30 to 49 age group.
