All the pilgrims numbers from Santiago January – May 2014


More and more Americans!

Today the sun is shining in Santiago and pilgrims are pouring into the city. We now have the numbers for May and the first 5 months of the year. They make interesting reading and raise some questions.

Last year was remarkable when the number of pilgrims from the USA rose by 43%. Not only has the number remained high but in the period report 6.6% more Americans have arrived than last year.

Over the last few years the growth rate in pilgrims numbers overall goes up between 10 – 12%. However the growth rate in the first 5 months of this year is lower than the previous two years. Is growth slowing down? We don’t know yet. This is a trend to watch.

The Amigos are in place welcoming long lines of pilgrims. I’ll tell you more about them soon.

May arrivals

During the month of May 27354 pilgrims arrived at the Pilgrims’ Office. This compares to 25206 who arrived in the same period in 2013. This is an 8.5% increase.

The year to date

Number of pilgrims who have registered at the Pilgrims´Office from 1 January 2014 to 31 May 2014:  49,728

In the same period in 2013: 46,156

This represents 7.7% increase between 2013 and 2014

But is growth slowing down?

However the growth in the same period between 2012 and 2013 was 9.9% and between 2011 and 2012 it was 9.1%

How are the English speaking countries doing?

The number of Americans rose by 43% to over 10,000 last year. Since then numbers have continued to rise – with another 6.6% increase in this period.
