The population grew by 12.5% (1,138 persons) between the 1992 and 2002 censuses.AdministrationAs a commune, Lonquimay is a third-level administrative division of Chile administered by a municipal council, headed by an alcalde who is directly elected every four years. The 2008-2012 alcalde is Guillermo Vásquez Veroiza (PPD).
