Spain's population shrinks as immigrants flee economic crisis
Spain's population fell last year for the first time in decades, as immigrants left the country amid a major economic crisis, officials say.
The National Statistic Institute (NSI) says the number of residents dropped by almost 206,000 to 47.1m - the decline entirely accounted for by foreigners.
Immigrants from Ecuador and Colombia showed the biggest fall.
The figures do not take into account many Spaniards who have left in search of work but are still on the census.
