Spain's population:
Spain's population has increased during the past century. Population growth was especially high from 2000 to 2011. This growth was the result of inmigration to Spain from other countries. In 2012, the population of Spain began to decrease as inmigrants returned home. This was because of high unemployment in Spain.
