It has a population of about 80,000 with the Cuyuno ethno-linguistic group comprising about half of the population while the rest of the populace are a mixture of other Philippine cultural groups coming from as far as Ilocos and down to the southern islands of Mindanao, with majority of the migrants coming from the Central Visayan Islands of Panay, Negros, Cebu and nearby provinces.  The municipality has 31 villages with distinct ethno-linguistic characters, making Taytay a melting pot of various Philippine cultures.
