The municipality continues to be the third most populated in the province behind Málaga and Marbella

Mijas is once again gaining population and is close to 93,000 inhabitants, a figure that once again places the municipality as the third most populated in the province behind Málaga and Marbella. If last year it exceeded the barrier of 90,000 inhabitants, according to data provided by the Town Hall, now 92,920 people live in the municipality. "This shows that more and more families are deciding to establish their project in our municipality, precisely because of the great services it offers; because of the location, as it is well communicated with the capital and the city of Marbella; and, above all, also because of the job opportunities that are generated in our municipality", said the mayor of Mijas, Josele González (PSOE), who took stock of the population data together with the councillor for Statistics of the Town Hall, Roy Pérez (PSOE).

The fact is that population growth brings many advantages for the whole municipality: "Much of the income we receive in this Town Hall, in this municipality, is from the State and the Junta de Andalucía and these numbers are made through the census. The inhabitants we have in the municipality translate to income, which is then invested so that we have more security forces in the municipality or more infrastructure", concluded the councillor for Statistics.
