PEOPLE
After 5 decades of population decrease, that reached 257 thousand inhabitants (1/3 of the initial population), Lisbon’s population stabilized (slowing down the demographic decrease registered in the previous decades, with only a 3% population decay in the last one), due to the growing number of families and young residents rate.
At present the decrease of population is again an up-do-date issue that may lead to a reversion of these facts.
