MARQUES, Teresa; RIBEIRO, Diogo; MAIA, Catarina  e  SANTOS, Hélder. To be born is to age: an evolutionary and territorial demographic perspective in the construction of the future of Portugal. GOT [online]. 2016, n.10, pp.207-231. ISSN 2182-1267.

Population growth is currently one of the major challenges facing European countries. This analysis puts forward a temporal and geographical view of demography, intended to portray the challenges rooted in time and territory. Over its history, Portugal has always overcome its demographic trends, the changes in reproductive rates, and the effects of migrations (internal and external). At the local level, the main reason explaining the demographic situation is not natural dynamics, but rather mobility, which will tend to become even more evident in the coming years. The country overcame high mortality rates, life cycles became longer, production increased in efficiency, and less births were required to obtain the same levels of population stock. It also had to contend with the impacts of emigration. Portugal now has to invest in its attractiveness if it intends to maintain its population size.
