DREM releases Preliminary Results of 2021 Census for the Autonomous Region of Madeira 

The Regional Directorate of Statistics of Madeira (DREM) makes available today, in its official statistics website, the Preliminary Results of the XVI General Population Census and VI General Housing Census (2021 Census) for the Autonomous Region of Madeira. 

In the last 10 years, the resident population of Madeira decreased by 6.2%, i.e., there are 16,725 fewer people than in 2011, setting the resident population at 251,060, in 2021. Of this total, 53.1% are women and 46.9% men, with the proportion of women increasing by 0.3 percentage points over the previous Census. 

The population reduction was shared by all municipalities, being less significant in Santa Cruz (-1.7%) and more pronounced in Santana (-15.0%). Of the 54 civil parishes in the Autonomous Region of Madeira, only 7 registered increases, being Água de Pena (+12.9%) the most noteworthy. 

Despite the population drop, the number of households increased by 2.2% and, in the municipalities, only Santana and S. Vicente showed a reduction in this variable. This result suggests a continued decrease in the number of persons per household. 

In the Autonomous Region of Madeira, in 2021, the housing stock was made up of 130,840 dwellings and 91,873 buildings, almost unchanged when compared to 2011.

In Centro and in the Autonomous Region of the Azores the rates of decrease were close, 4.3% and 4.1%, respectively.
