First, Sant Cugat, followed by Sant Quirze del Vallès and then Sitges. The data for the average per capita income (PCI), published this week by Spain’s National Statistics Institute (INE), puts Sitges back on the Catalan podium.
The average annual net income per resident in Sitges is 17,666 euros, while in Sant Cugat it is 21,122 and in Sant Quirze, 18,931. The town in Spain that tops the list is Pozuelo de Alarcón (Madrid), with 26,367 euros. Sitges is the 14th for the whole country. The other Catalan towns or cities that follow Sitges are Barcelona, Vilassar de Mar, El Masnou, Molins de Rei, Castelldefels, Sant Joan Despí, Esplugues de Lloregat, Sant Feliu de Llobregat, Castellar del Vallès and Girona.
The third place occupied by Sitges is the same as the one registered last year, following the same two towns. Two years ago, however, it was the 6th Catalan town and 16th in Spain. The INE study is carried out among 416 cities and towns with more than 20,000 residents across the country.
