In 1900, the population of Catalonia was 1,984,115 people and in 1970 it was 5,107,606. That increase was due to the demographic boom in Spain during the 60s and early 70s and also to the large-scale internal migration from the rural interior of Spain to its industrial cities. In Catalonia that wave of internal migration arrived from several regions of Spain, especially Andalusia, Murcia and Extremadura. Immigrants from other countries settled in Catalonia in the 1990s and 2000; a large percentage came from Africa and Latin America, and smaller numbers from Asia and Eastern Europe.
