The Spanish population continues to age and, for the first time in history, the country now has more than 20% of Spaniards over the age of 65. In the midst of the debate on pension increases, this figure, provided by the INE (National Statistics Institute), means that a third of Spain’s inhabitants belong to the third age group. This number has been rising steadily since 1975 and the trend suggests that the population in need of monetary retribution from the state is growing.

In addition to ageing, the data reflect a decline in the Spanish population where the number of Spaniards plummets with 113,023 fewer inhabitants, although the figure is compensated by an increase in immigration into the country, given that the migratory balance is positive with 148,677 inhabitants due to the migration movements that have taken place after the standstill suffered due to the pandemic and the confinement of 2020. Thus, the population increased by 34,110 people in 2021.
