As in previous years, Spain recorded net emigration rather than net immigration in 2013. The outflow of foreigners exceeded the inflow by 211 000 persons in 2013. The (gross) migration inflow of foreigners reached 248 000 persons and the outflow stood at almost 460 000. There was also net emigration of Spanish nationals in 2013: while 73 000 emigrated, 32 000 immigrated. Among the emigrating Spanish nationals, two-thirds were born in Spain and one-third were foreign-born; about three-quarters were of working age (16-64 years).
