The average number of people registered with the Spanish Social Security system stood at 17,813,356 in October, the largest increase in this month on record. Furthermore, the system has incorporated 591,889 contributors over the last year, the largest increase since 2005 (a year statistically conditional upon the mass regularisation of immigrants).
More than 100,000 new contributors have joined the General Regime (specifically 100,520) in October. Furthermore, the average figure for female contributors is the highest on record, at 8,246,786, since this figure was split up by gender.
This positive result in terms of affiliation is supported by the month-on-month figures in seasonally-adjusted terms (up 107,457), the best figure since August 2005 (118,000).
