I’m fascinated by data. Well not so much data, as the informative ways it can be displayed. One of my favourite coffee table books is called Information is Beautiful (link at the end).
Well, there’s a page on the Ajuntament de Barcelona website called Studies on Immigration that contains some great information about Barcelona immigration statistics. I spent far too long poring over it when I should have been working. I thought you might find some of it interesting too!
Below are some snapshots from the Població Estrangera a Barcelona (Foreign Population in Barcelona) PDF. Unless you happen to be a bird of prey click on any of the thumbnails to scroll through larger versions.
Foreign Population in Barcelona
These immigration statistics are from January 2012. For this and more information visit the Studies on Immigration page.
And you can find Information is Beautiful on Amazon for a very reasonable 13 pounds and 24 pence (at the time of writing).
Is there any other interesting data about Barcelona or Catalonia you know of?
