Traditionally, Formentera del Segura has been a specially agrarian town, though today this already does not correspond to the reality since in only 20 years it has passed from a domain of the primary sector to a current situation where this one is the least representative and where the weight of the local economy fall into the sectors secondarily and tertiary. In addition, to this change in the economic structure of the town it is necessary to add that there is immersed in an important stage of growth, both urban and socioeconomic, derivative of the great urban development activity of the zone This way, in scarcely a couple of years it has passed of a population practically stagnate in approximately 2.000 inhabitants to having at present more than 3.000 and with forecasts (included in the PGOU, which one finds in process of draft in these dates) of that in a few years 5.000 inhabitants are reached.
