I’ve being working in some data about Portugal and its demographics. Here’s my first .gif. In 2000, Portuguese populational growth hit 0.80%, its highest since the 1991. From 2000 to 2009, as the country got older and birth rates plummeted, Portugal’s growth turned weak. Finally, after the recession, a further big drop on birth rate and now mass emigration, played their roles. For more data on the issue, keep following me and contact if need.
