The preliminary results of the 2022 Census, which were finally released this Tuesday and
corrected the country's total population data
, allowed us to begin to see in detail what population growth was like in the last decade in different parts of the country.
Thus, it was known, for example, that the province of Tierra del Fuego was the one that increased the most in number of inhabitants and the city of Buenos Aires the least, although it broke the three million mark.
This cut of the census also has the data by department, which allows us to see how
the population dynamics behaved in the cities and municipalities
And thus allowed to answer several questions.
One of them is which is the most populated city in the country.
The other, to answer an eternal question:
which has more inhabitants: Córdoba or Rosario?
Discarding the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (3,120,612 people), which is strictly speaking a federal district with the hierarchy in this case of the other 23 provinces, the department or party with the most inhabitants in the entire country is La Matanza, which accounted for 1,837,774.
And in the second and third place on the podium the
old dispute between Cordoba and Rosario
is settled .
Córdoba capital remains the second city with the most inhabitants (1,565,112) and Rosario also maintains its third place (1,342,619).
Continuing in the
top ten of the most inhabited cities
, La Plata repeats fourth place (772,618) but the district of General Pueyrredón, where Mar del Plata is, fell to sixth place 682,605 displaced in fifth by Lomas de Zamora (694,330 ).
Quilmes (636,026), Salta capital (627,107), Almirante Brown (585,852) and Tucumán capital (584,798) complete the ranking.
The provinces that grew the most in population
The Province of Buenos Aires is
the district with the largest population in the entire country
: 17,569,053 inhabitants.
The province of Córdoba has 3,978,984 and Santa Fe, 3,556,522.
The province that increased its population the most compared to the 2010 Census was Tierra del Fuego, with a rise of 49.86%.
It is followed by Neuquén, with 31.80% and further away in third place is San Luis, with 25.11%.
From Tierra del Fuego, it should be added that it was the province with the highest percentage of digital censuses: more than 15,600 families completed the process (20.5%).
Census 2022: which are the provinces that grew the most in population
Together for Change insists that the data from the 2022 Census prove that the population of La Matanza was adulterated in 2010
