Canarians are getting older

THE average age of the Canary population is now 40, which is a rise of four more years than at the beginning of the Millennium.

Sociologically, this upward trend means that if the ageing continues long-term, the sustainability of the pension system may be jeopardised.

However, the situation on each of the islands is completely different. The figures paint a demographic map, clearly divided into two parts: East and West.

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
