Growing since the coming of foreigners in the 1940s, population has risen 43% from 77,624 to 110,692, between 1980 and 2000. It has slowed since with most of the drop due to the falling birthrates. 40% of the population is under the age of 15. 54% is between the ages of 15 and 64. As of the 2005 census the population was 139,297 about 46% or 59,691 people living in the town of San Miguel proper. Most of the municipality's population lives in rural areas in communities of less than 2,500 people. Indigenous groups, mostly Otomi and Nahuas, who account for 38% of the municipal population, live in these smaller communities. Other indigenous groups include the Mazahua, Huasteca and P'urhepecha.
