Norilsk people: are there many of them?

June 08, 2020

Norilsk is called a city of young people. Most of them leave it for the mainland before they get the age of 50.

According to the latest federal statistics, a little more than 180 thousand people lived in Norilsk in 2019. On January 1, 2019, the city was in 106th place out of 1115 in the country by the number of the inhabitants. But it was not always like that.

The following years were the richest in terms of population in the city:

2006 – 213 200 people lived in Norilsk;

2007 – some of them migrated, and 209 400 residents remained in the city;

2008 – minus 3 000 citizens, 206 400 Norilsk residents as a result.

Norilsk is the city of the young
Those residents who do not leave the city in summer take part in traditional festivals
There are not many people in the city but the majority of them are involved in charity activities. Like running for the sake of the disabled Norilsk children

Experts explain these figures by the fact that it was the post-crisis time those years, so there was an increase in production and the establishment of small business, trade and services, which needed personnel, and, therefore, urban residents.

The smallest year for Norilsk according to the All-Union Population Census was 1939. Only 13 886 people lived there. By the way, Norilsk was given the status of a working village that year.
