foreigners living permanent in Crete

Postby sva » Fri May 25, 2018 10:37 am

Hi everybody. Do you have any idea how many foreigners are living in Crete ? I mean permanent residence. Roughly. Have you heard about any officialy statistics in this regard ? Did any Greek authority prepared any research like this ? Or any private entity ? Thanks

I don't have specific figures for Crete. The last Greek census was carried out in 2011. According to that the total population of Greece was 10,815,197 of which 911,929 were permanent foreign residents, i.e. about 8.5 %. Of those 199,101 were citizens of other European countries, i.e. about 2 %. Of the 911,929 the majority were Albanian, 52.7 %, followed by Bulgarian, 8.3 %, Romanian, 5.1 %, Pakistani, 3.7 % and Georgian, 3 %.

The total population of the different Nomos of Crete in that census were:

    Chania 156,585
    Rethymno 85,609
    Heraklion 305,490
    Lasithi 75,381
    Crete Total 623,065

If Crete has the same distribution of foreigners as Greece in General, and it may not, then that would suggest a total of around 52,536 foreigners were living here in 2011 of which 11,470 were from other EU countries.
