Religion

The Constitution (Article 41) guarantees freedom of religion. State and church have been separated by law since 1911. All religious communities are legally equal. The position of the Catholic Church as a state church, which was de facto given in the constitution of 1933, was repealed by the constitution of 1976. The basis of the relationship between the state and the Roman Catholic Church as the largest religious community is the Concordat concluded in 2004 (replaces the 1940 Concordat).

According to the 2011 census, which represents residents aged 15 and over, around 85% of the population are Christians: 81% belong to the Catholic Church, over 3% to other Christian churches (Pentecostals, Adventists, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Anglicans, etc.). If the baptized children under the age of 15 are included as church members, estimates come to a Catholic population of 90% or more.

The Catholic Church includes the Patriarchate of Lisbon and the Archdioceses of Braga and Évora with 17 suffragan dioceses. The only Protestant church of purely Portuguese tradition is the Lusitanische (Catholic Apostolic Evangelical) Church (“Igreja Lusitana [Católica Apostólica Evangélica]”, about 0.05% of the population) founded in 1880; it has been a member of the Anglican Church Fellowship since 1980 as an overseas diocese under the sovereignty of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

According to various sources, there are (2011) between around 24,000 and 40,000 Muslims living in Portugal (around 0.2–0.4% of the population; the majority of them are Sunnis). Religious centers are the mosque and the cultural center of the Islamic Community in Lisbon, founded in 1968. – After their expulsion from Portugal (1496), the Jews were not officially recognized as a religious community again until 1892. Today there are Jewish communities in Lisbon and Porto; around 800 Portuguese Jews belong to them. – Other religious communities are the Jehovah’s Witnesses (approx. 0.5% of the population) and the Mormons (approx. 0.4% of the population).

Population

The population consists almost entirely of Portuguese. 1974-76 over 600,000 Portuguese came back to the mother country from the former African possessions (retornados). Through immigration, among other things. of the autochthonous population from the former colonies, ethnic diversity has increased since the end of the 20th century. The proportion of people with foreign citizenship was 3.86% (2017). The annual population growth is 0.07% (birth rate 0.9%; death rate 1.1%). The average age is 41.8 years, life expectancy 79.3 years (men 76.1; women 82.8). Of the residents (2016) 15.5% are younger than 15 years, 19.2% are older than 65 years.

The average population density is 112 residents / km 2. The 50 km wide coastal strip from the northern border to Lisbon is densely populated. 65% of the population live in cities. The agglomerations of Lisbon and Porto accommodate over a third of the total population.
