Population of municipalities in the region grow

The population of Eindhoven and their surrounding towns has grown over the past year, according to figures from the CBS.

Especially Eindhoven, Eersel, Heeze-Leende and Best had a growth of more than ten new residents per thousand inhabitants. But also municipalities such as Nuenen, Geldrop-Mierlo, Oirschot, Waalre, Son en Breugel and Veldhoven can credit a plus. Nuenen and Veldhoven had the smallest growth in 2017.

Considering the whole Metropolis Eindhoven Region, there are a few outliers. Laarbeek and Gemert-Bakel are growing fast, and Cranendonck is the only shrink municipality of Southeast Brabant. It has no ‘natural cause’: the refugee centre in that municipality was closed.

In 2017 the citizen number in the Netherlands increased with 100,000 people, which is similar to 2016.
