Ethnically and linguistically, the population (Filipinos) comprises more than 50 groups (Ifugao, Kalinga, Lumad, Mangyan, Moro, Tagalen, Tausug, Visaya and others).
The historically oldest residents, the Aeta, number only around 70,000 people; they were partially displaced from their original habitat. Of the immigrants in the last few centuries, the Chinese and the mixed race of Chinese origin (10% of the population) play a significant role in the economy as a largely integrated but coherent group. The ethnic diversity is also reflected in the linguistic diversity of the country. The language of the Tagalen, the Tagalog (since 1987 Filipino) modified by borrowing from other Filipino languages and American English, has been the official language of the Philippines in its standardized form since 1946.
With an average (2017) 352 residents / km 2, the Philippines are very densely populated. Over 90% of the population live on the largest islands. The main areas of settlement are the plains of the two main islands, Luzon and Mindanao, while the mountain regions are only sparsely populated. Around one in four lives in the greater Manila area and the regions bordering on the north and south of the region, which are well developed in terms of infrastructure. Overall, the share of the urban population (2017) is 44%. Around 10 million Filipino nationals live as migrant workers abroad (mainly in the USA and in the Near and Middle East).
The most serious development problem is the rapid population growth since the end of the Second World War: between 1948 and 2016, the population rose from 19.2 million to 103.3 million. Check shoefrantics to see Thousands of Islands in the Philippines.
