Total population of Groningen from 2008 to 2018*

Total population of Groningen 2008-2018 In 2018, the population of Groningen (including the smaller towns Haren, Hoogkerk, Ten Boer and Glimmen) amounted to just over 200,000, making it the largest city in the north of the country and the eighth-largest city in the Netherlands. In the last ten years, Groningen’s population grew slowly but steadily, from roughly 182,500 in 2008 to approximately 202,800 today. 
Groningen: city, municipality and province

  Groningen is the capital of the province of the same name, which numbered approximately 583,000 inhabitants in 2018. One of the most sparsely regions of the country, only Zeeland, Flevoland and Drenthe had fewer inhabitants than Groningen that year. The municipality Groningen as well as the province saw a positive population development in this period: between 2008 and 2018, the province’s population increased by nearly 9,500 people. This is also in line with the general demographic trend in the Netherlands, as the country experienced year on year population growth in the last decade.

 Groningen, pride of the north? 

  A rural region far away from the country’s Randstad center, many inhabitants of the province feel strongly connected to their home turf. In a recent survey, nearly 70 percent of ‘Groningers’ – as the inhabitants of Groningen are called – stated to feel strongly connected to their province. The same survey found that Groningers were also generally very proud of their province – although not quite at the same level of their Frisian neighbors, who topped the ranking. The mentality of the people, the nature as well as the capital’s scenic old town were among the most-frequently mentioned reasons to be proud of Groningen. By contrast, few Groningers took pride in local football team FC Groningen or in specific regional dishes.
