The districts of Carabanchel, with 262,339 inhabitants; Fuencarral-El Pardo, with 248,443; Latina, with 241,672, and Puente de Vallecas, with 241,603 inhabitants, are the most populous in the capital and account for almost 30% of the municipal population, the municipal government spokesperson, Inmaculada Sanz, reported this Thursday.
This is how Sanz explained it after updating the municipal pattern, where it is highlighted that Moratalaz, with 92,814 inhabitants; Vicálvaro, with 83,804, and Barajas, with 48,646, are the ones with the lowest number of residents.
“Throughout 2022, all the districts increased their registered population. The most, Carabanchel and Ciudad Lineal, while Retiro hardly suffers any variation”, Inmaculada Sanz has detailed. Only five districts present a positive vegetative growth, where Villa de Vallecas stands out, with 418 inhabitants.
For their part, Chamberí (1,531), Salamanca (702) and Centro (692) are the districts with the greatest mobility, registering a higher balance with respect to entries and exits from Madrid from other Spanish municipalities. All the districts have a positive foreign migratory balance, the highest being Carabanchel (13,442) and Puente de Vallecas (12,163).
Vicálvaro, with 2,408 more registered residents, and Hortaleza, with 1,652, are the districts that have gained the most population as a result of the transfer of residents from other districts of the city of Madrid. On the other hand, the Centro district loses more than 3,000 inhabitants for this reason. In total, there were 214,302 changes of address, nearly 28,000 fewer than in 2021.
By nationality, the districts of Centro, Usera, Villaverde, Carabanchel, Puente de Vallecas and Tetuán exceed 20% of the foreign population, while in Fuencarral-El Pardo and Retiro it does not exceed 10%.
