Demografia de Quintana Roo

According to the latest population census run across the nation in the year 2005, the state of Quintana Roo reported 1'135,309 inhabitants, with a high growth rate of 5,9%, due to the intense migration taking place every year, mostly of people looking for better employment opportunities.
