CANCUN — State Population Council (Coespo) for Quintana Roo predicts the state’s population will reach more than 2 million by the year 2025.
Current population growth trends show that by the 2025, the state will exceed the 2 million mark with the municipality of Benito Juárez housing the largest concentration. According to Coespo findings, Benito Juárez will house 47.5 percent of the state’s population.
Juan Pablo López Pérez, director of the State Population Council, points out that over the next 10 years, the city of Cancun will see a population expansion to around 870,000, an increase of 88,000 from 2016 statistics.
Enoel Pérez Cortez, federal delegate for the Labor and Social Security Secretariat (STPS), says, “People keep coming every day.” He explains that people continue to arrive to Quintana Roo in search of work. In particular, young people arrive here for employment opportunities from around the country, and once they become established, they send for their families. As of this year, the average age in the state is 26.
According to State Employment and Training Service (Seecat), nearly 65,000 jobs have been created throughout Quintana Roo over the last six years, with more than half of those new opportunities being created in Cancun and Solidaridad.
According to Coespo, there are currently 1.6 million people living in the state with Cancun leading the way with a population of 779,646. The municipality of Solidarity (including Playa del Carmen) has 228,186 full-time residents.
