Montevideo Population Demographics

The city throughout the 20th century saw a large influx of immigrants from all over Europe, including French, Germans, Spanish and Italians. People from all over the world have come to call Montevideo home because of its thriving economy and very high quality of life – the highest in Latin America.

Montevideo Growth

The population throughout the years has primarily grown, rising from just over 300,000 in 1908 to over 1 million by the 1960s. The population saw a small decline in population between the early 1960s and the mid-1970s, before seeing growth again in the 1980s and 1990s. However, another population drop occurred between 1996 and 2004, primarily because of lowered fertility and migration out of the city. However, census data between 2004 and 2011 showed that the population was on the rise again. This trend should continue as the city is consistently ranked as having the highest quality of life in Latin America and offers multiple employment and educational opportunities for its residents.
