From January to May this year, 1,356 people died in Madeira. In the same period, only 709 babies were born.
The numbers confirm that the negative natural balance continues to worsen, following the trend of recent years as there are twice as many deaths as births.
An article issued last year, suggested that by 2050, Madeira’s population would decrease to approximately 175,00 -180,000 people.
