Positive demography

More and more people are settling in the Alpes de Haute Provence!

Since 2006, the population of the Région Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur has increased by 100,800 inhabitants. Thus it has a total population of 4,916,069.

On average from 2007 to 2014, a progression of 0.6 % of new entrants in the department can be noted, i.e. twice the regional average (+ 0.3 %) and above the national average (+ 0.5 %).

According to Insee projections for 2040, this geographical dynamic should last and even accelerate. The population would thus grow by a quarter in under 30 years.
