At least 18 Brazilian cities have more residences than inhabitants, according to data from the geographic coordinates of the 2022 Census released this Friday, 2, by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE). In general, municipalities with more houses than people are tourist destinations, which tend to receive more people on weekends, holidays and vacation periods. Ilha Comprida, on the coast of São Paulo, is one of them.

The State with the greatest concentration of municipalities with these characteristics is Rio Grande do Sul. Arroio do Sol, approximately 170 kilometers from Porto Alegre, has 18.9 thousand houses for 11.1 thousand residents. In other words, there are almost two houses (1.7) for each inhabitant. The same happens in other cities in Rio Grande do Sul, such as Xangri-lá, Cidreira, Balneário Pinhal, Palmares do Sul and Imbé.

Other cities in different states that also have more residences than inhabitants are: Ilha Comprida (SP), Matinhos (PR), Ilha de Itamaracá (PE), Mangaratiba (RJ), Saubara (BA), Jaguaruna (SC), Portal do Paraná (BA) and Vera Cruz (BA).

The data was obtained from the geographic coordinates of the 2022 Census. Each coordinate corresponds to an address visited by census agents. The country has 5,568 municipalities.

This is the first time that IBGE has captured the coordinates of all urban households in the country. In the 2017 Agricultural Census, IBGE had already done this work in rural areas, for agricultural establishments.

The coordinates will be part of the National Registry for Statistical Purposes, the address base used by IBGE for the Demographic Census and also for other household surveys such as the Continuous National Household Sample Survey (PNAD), the Family Budget Survey (POF) and the National Demographic and Health Survey (PNDS).

The data can also be used to locate addresses in risk areas, such as places prone to flooding, landslides and fires, as well as to locate addresses in public administration planning zones and environmental conservation units.

Of the total addresses collected in the Census, 81.5% (or 90.6 million) were private households and 104.5 thousand (or 0.1%) were collective households. It is also possible to observe the types of establishments in the country: the majority of them were used for other purposes, with 11.7 million (or 10.5% of the total). This group includes stores, for example.

There were 264.4 thousand educational establishments, 247.5 thousand health establishments and 579.8 thousand religious establishments – more than the sum of institutions such as hospitals and schools. The buildings under construction, in turn, numbered 3.5 million.
