2022 Census: the population of the City increased by 8% and Caballito and Palermo were the neighborhoods that grew the most


The northern communes also increased their population. The Capital concentrates the highest percentage of female population.

As the projections indicated, the population in

the City of Buenos Aires remained stable


According to the data from the 2022 Census, published this Tuesday by INDEC, there are

3,120,612 people

living in Buenos Aires territory;

which implies

a growth of 7.97%

compared to the previous edition, that of 2010 (2,890,151).

And the highest population growth was registered in Comuna 12, made up of the neighborhoods of

Coghlan, Saavedra, Villa Urquiza and Villa Pueyrredón.

It increased by 18%: they went from 200,116 inhabitants in 2010 to 236,294 in 2022. It was followed by Comuna 6, made up of a single neighborhood,


here the number of male and female neighbors increased by 15.7% (from 176,076 to 203,784).

The neighborhoods of

Núñez, Belgrano and Colegiales

(belonging to Comuna 13) were in third place due to population growth: they went from having 231,331 inhabitants in 2010 to 265,199 in 2022 (14.6%).

And the other neighborhood that was located over 10% growth was


(Comuna 14), with 249,016 inhabitants in 2022, against 225,970 inhabitants in 2010.

The modification of the Urban Code in 2018, which enabled the construction of a greater number of square meters in many of these neighborhoods, could explain the growth in the population.

In any case, the subsequent analysis of these figures that today are

"provisional results"

-as remarked by the head of INDEC, Marcos Lavagna- could provide greater precision to try to understand why growth was concentrated in these areas.

X-ray of the country today





In contrast to these four communes, there was one in which the population


: commune 7, made up of the neighborhoods of

Flores and Parque Chacabuco.

It went from having 220,591 inhabitants in the previous census to 216,832 in the current one.

While Commune 2 (the one that integrates the

Recoleta neighborhood)

seems to have been


during the passage of these twelve years that separate one census from the other: it had 157,932 in 2010 and 158,368 in this last edition.

Only 436 new neighbors and neighbors.

The Census also revealed that the City concentrates

the highest percentage of the female population

, compared to the rest of the jurisdictions.

At the country level, the percentage was 51.76%;

while in Buenos Aires it was

almost 54%. 

The City of Buenos Aires increased its population by 8%, according to the 2022 Census,Photo Maxi Failla

From INDEC they explained that the increase in "female dominance is common in all societies, worldwide, and is due to a

decrease in fertility

and the gain in years of life that favors women."

For the first time, the Census registered the

population living on the streets.

And the methodology used in the City was repeated: the census takers walked the streets one night and counted those who slept in them.

Perhaps the most curious fact known so far is that


very different jurisdictions in terms of population have the majority of homeless people: City of Buenos Aires with 903, Province of Buenos Aires with 961 (and a population of more than 17.5 million) and Salta, with 244 people living outdoors.

This methodology to count people was highly

criticized by social organizations,

who understand that the census sweep is very limited.

For years they have been demanding that the survey of people living on the streets be carried out for at least two days, at different times.

With these preliminary data, a trend that is accentuated in each Census is confirmed, at least in Buenos Aires territory, and that is that the population remains stable, with minimal variations.

This information, on the other hand, is just the kickoff.
