Spain’s mass exodus

MORE than half-a-million people left Spain in 2013, many of them foreigners, with 79,306 Spanish nationals making up the numbers.

But the Canary Islands actually showed a slight increase in population of 0.46%.

Figures from the Migration Study, conducted by the National Statistics Institute (INE), reveal that 547,890 people left the country last year.

This means Spain’s population has dropped for the second year running. In 2013, the drop stood at 220,130, closing the year with a total population of just over 46½ million.
