Question for Will, Belem or . . .

I recently came across a population figure for Troncones, and I keep wondering how it was calculated. Only full time residents, some or all of the beachfront property owners? It would actually be interesting to have figures for both.

Thanks ,

Mexico's official INEGI stats only cover permanent residents who are Mexican citizens, not foreigners. The 2020 census has still not been made public, so it is likely you saw estimated or outdated numbers. I recently made an estimate somewhere, maybe here on the Message Board or Facebook or someone's website, I can't recall at the moment. I wonder if that was the figure you saw.

Here are a few recent posts that, (as Rob pointedly pointed out, ignoring my proviso about the numbers being approximate) are apparently a tad outdated:


Hola! Would you know recent populations of the communities of Zihua, Troncones and Barra de Potosi. Or can you send me in the right direction please. Gracias


Google's your friend.....however approximate:

Zihua...."approximately 120,000" (probably includes the entire municipality, not just Zihua proper)

Troncones.....593

Barra de Potosi....396

Those are outdated data from the last census ten years ago, but thanks.
