Population Growth of Seville
The city itself has experienced periods of ups and downs when looking at the history of its population. Some declines were recorded in the 1990s and early 2000s. Later in the 2000s, additional population losses have been recorded. This could be due to the fact that many people are moving from the city to the suburbs and surrounding areas, which have a lower cost of living. The city also has an aging population. Based on recent data, further declines in population may be expected. However, history has shown that Seville has bounced back after experiencing these losses.
