Portugal is experiencing a demographic crisis, which is weakened only by immigrants

Portugal has lost 196,000 people in the past ten years, and is rapidly moving towards a serious demographic crisis, with projections indicating between 7 to 8 million Portuguese within 30 years. The survey conducted by the Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation (FFMS) shows that it was immigrants who were able to mitigate the decline, with more entries and children. The good news is that the number of migrants has decreased and some are returning.
