Source text - Spanish La Coruña is not a city outside the process of strengthening the metropolitan areas that are occurring in Europe. Thus, in the last decade of the twentieth century the municipality lost about 3,500 inhabitants while its metropolitan area, composed of eight municipalities, grew by 20,000. The population growth rate observed since the end of the 19th century began to decline, mainly due to two factors: Residential decentralization: there was a continuous displacement of the residential areas towards the municipalities of the metropolitan area, where about 100,000 inhabitants live. > The price of land and housing favored this migration to metropolitan areas.

Negative vegetative growth: there are more deaths than births and that is why the population has declined since 1987. .The birth rate is 6.9, more than 2 points lower than the Spanish, but matched with the Galician rate. The rate of the entire metropolitan area is half a point higher than that of the city.

Despite this data, the population begins to recover thanks to immigration. While this in the 1980s and 1990s was primarily of returning, professional and retired emigrants, the current immigrant population is young South Americans, and to a much lesser extent, people from the Far East, sub-Saharan Africa, and Eastern Europe.

The city is located in a phase of population stagnation, induced by the lack of building land and the low price of the square meter in the metropolitan area. Even so, in the last 10 years the city has regained part of its population, again equaling its historical record of 1991 (246,000) in 2010.

Translation - English The city of La Coruña is no stranger to the process of shoring up metropolitan areas taking place in Europe. Thus, in the last decade of the twentieth century, the city lost about 3,500 inhabitants, while its metropolitan area, consisting of eight municipalities grew by 20,000. The population growth rate observed since the late nineteenth century began to decline, due to two factors: Residential Decentralisation: there was a steady shift from residential areas to metropolitan municipalities where nearly 100,000 people live.

Its perennial foliage remains attractive throughout the year and its spring flowers are nothing short of beautiful. Phlox subulata forms shallow roots and its horizontal stems light easily so its common name creeping Phlox.

The price of land and housing encouraged this migration to metropolitan areas. This metropolitan area consists of the municipalities of Culleredo, Arteijo, Oleiros, Sada, Bergondo, Abegondo, Cambre and Carral.

Negative natural growth: There are more deaths than births and therefore the population has declined since 1987. The birth rate is about 6.9, more than two points lower than the Spanish average, but at an even level with the overall Galician rate. The rate for the entire metropolitan area is half a point higher than that of the city.

Despite these data, the population has begun to recover thanks to immigration. While in the 80's and 90's immigrants were mainly returnees, professionals and retired people, today they tend to be young South Americans, and to a much lesser extent, people from the Far East, sub-Saharan Africa and Eastern Europe.

The city itself currently has a stagnating population caused by the lack of building land and the low price per square meter in the metropolitan area. Yet even so, over the last ten years it has regained part of its population, matching its 1991 historical record of 246,000 in 2010.
