Demographic data

According to the 1999 census, 182,952 inhabitants were registered in the 598 hectare 20th arrondissement. This corresponds to a population density of 30,594 inhabitants per km². This means that 8.3% of the Paris population have their main residence in this arrondissement. The 20th arrondissement is traditionally a working-class district, which is reflected in the political preference for left-wing parties and has always been a magnet for immigrants, at the beginning of the 20th century from Italy, Poland and Spain, then from the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa; thus it also resembles the neighboring 11th and 19th arrondissements.
