Arroio do Sal, a city in Rio Grande do Sul with around 11,100 inhabitants, has 7,800 more households than residents. Far from being a ghost town, the municipality (170 km from Porto Alegre) sees an increase in population during the summer, when families choose to spend their vacations near the sea. This phenomenon, which extends to 17 other cities in the country, was verified based on the geographic coordinates of the 2022 Demographic Census, released this Friday (2) by IBGE (Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics).

Each geographic coordinate corresponds to an address visited by the agents responsible for the census, which can be a home or commercial, religious, health or educational establishment, for example.

By crossing population data from the Census – whose reference is July 31, 2022 – it is possible to verify where there are more households than residents. The majority of cases are in tourist cities, such as Ilha Comprida (SP), Matinhos (PR), Ilha de Itamaracá (PE), Mangaratiba (RJ) and Saubara (BA). Rio Grande do Sul has 7 of the 18 cities in this situation, the majority on the north coast of the state. Arroio do Sal, for example, has a ratio of 1.7 residences per person – or, read another way, 0.59 inhabitants per residence.

Other municipalities in Rio Grande do Sul that appear in the ranking are also on the north coast: Xangri-Lá (1.4 households per inhabitant), Cidreira (1.4), Balneário Pinhal (1.3) and Palmares do Sul (1.3). Jaguaruna (SC), Pontal do Paraná (PR), Imbé (RS), Ilha Comprida (SP) and Saubara (BA) complete the list of the ten municipalities with the highest number of households per inhabitant. In these places, the ratio is approximately 1.2 residences per person.

In Rio de Janeiro, Mangaratiba, which has 41,220 inhabitants, is famous for housing luxurious condominiums, including Neymar’s mansion, currently at Al Hilal, in Saudi Arabia.

The movement increases in the city on weekends with the arrival of families from the west zone of Rio and Baixada Fluminense interested in taking advantage of the Poção de Muriqui, a watercourse that begins at the meeting of three waterfalls and progresses through the streets until it flows onto the beach. from Muriqui. Matinhos, on the coast of Paraná, expanded its coastline with 3.2 million cubic meters of sand (220 thousand trucks), at a cost of R$314.9 million. With this, it joined other coastal cities in the country that have invested in expansion to boost tourism and overcome problems of coastal erosion.

In Baía de Todos os Santos, Vera Cruz (BA), separated six decades ago from neighboring Itaparica, has among its most popular destinations Conceição beach, famous for its good structure and tranquility. (LUCAS LACERDA AND LEONARDO VIECELI/Folhapress)
