Dominicans leaving Spain
Between 2010 and 2015 more than a million foreign residents including 637,000 Latin Americans have left Spain due to lack of work and have chosen to return to their home countries.
Spain has been experiencing a decline in its population over recent years due to the exodus of foreigners and Spanish nationals, the aging population, which results in around 400,000 deaths a year, and a low birth rate.
Of those who left, 223,189 were from Ecuador, with 176,000 still remaining in Spain, 141,383 Colombians have left and 151,258 remain. There are 126,373 Bolivians in Spain with 86,794 having left and 69,070 Peruvians have left, leaving 71,112 still in the country. From Argentina, 56,936 have left with 75,313 still there, 43,945 Brazilians (73,863), 16,236 Paraguayans (69,451) and 15,897 Dominicans (75,315).
The largest group of foreigners in Spain is Romanians with 753,268 people there even though 78,967 have left since 2010.
