Population

The composition of the population is very homogeneous: around 98% have Greek as their mother tongue. The largest minority are the Turks who, together with the Pomaks and the Turkish Roma (turkogyphtoi), enjoy minority protection as Muslims under the Treaty of Lausanne (1923). They live mainly in the East Macedonia and Thrace region. The Jews also enjoy contractual minority protection, although their number fell to a small remainder due to the Holocaust of World War II. The Romansh-speaking Aromanians, which are mostly Graecised today(100,000 – 300,000 people) and the Greek-speaking Sarakatsans, also referred to by the Greeks as the Vlachen, were originally ethnic groups who lived primarily as migrant shepherds in the mountains and have now become settled. The Slavophones in Greek Macedonia are also largely Graecised today.

The official language is Modern Greek and since 1974 also officially in the form of the popular language Dimotiki, which replaced the high-level and educational language Katharevusa. The average population density is 83 residents per km 2; However, over half of the population lives in the large agglomerations of Athens (3.7 million) and Thessaloniki (1.1 million) as well as in the cities on the axis between the two agglomerations. The reasons for the agglomeration are the choice of Athens as the capital of the new Greece, the centralized state system and the central location in the eastern Mediterranean. Efforts to decentralize have so far been half-hearted. Check handbagpicks to see Greece Travel Guide.

Emigration and remigration influenced the population development and distribution as well as the economic development of Greece. Well over 1 million people left the country permanently after the war as emigrants (mainly to the USA, Australia and Canada) and temporarily as migrant workers (guest workers). Emigration overseas had already begun before the turn of the 20th century. While the emigration there mainly came from southern and central Greece, the guest workers have come from the northern Greek regions of Epirus, Macedonia and Thrace since the beginning of the 1960s (tobacco crisis), to which the majority also returned. Since the debt crisis (from 2010) around 100,000 Greeks emigrate every year. With 112,000 immigrants (2017), there are only slightly more immigrants. The number has remained relatively constant since the 2006 Immigration Act came into force. There are currently between 300,000 and 400,000 Albanians living in Greece, mostly illegally. The number of registered foreigners is 7.52% (2017) (809 200).

Greece is particularly hard hit by the European refugee crisis. In the second half of 2015, around 500,000 asylum seekers tried to enter Central Europe via Greece. The closure of the so-called Balkan route made the situation increasingly problematic. The EU-Turkey agreement of March 2016 limits the further influx of refugees. The UN refugee agency UNHCR puts their number at 61,500 at the end of 2018. They are mainly housed in collective camps on the islands of Samos, Lesbos, Chios, Leros and Kos.

Social: The Greek debt crisis (from 2010) led to considerable economic losses for the population. According to the EU, 21.1% of people were at risk of poverty in 2017 (EU average: 6.9%). The unemployment rate (2019: 18.5%) is the highest in the EU. Youth unemployment (15–24 years) is as high as 39.7%. The 2016 pension reform brought significant pension cuts and an increase in the retirement age from 62 to 67 years. The many small business owners (craftsmen, operators of holiday accommodation), who mostly never paid public social security contributions, are particularly affected by poverty.
