In 2017

Net migration surplus for the first in the decade slowed down the population decrease

According to the Resident Population Estimates, 254,368 persons were residing in the Autonomous Region of Madeira on the 31st of December of 2017, which represents a negative change rate of 0.2% when compared to same date of 2016. Of that total, 118,411 were men and 135,957 women. The population of the Region has been dropping consecutively since 2011, although the net migration surplus recorded in 2017, softened this decline. The return to the Region of Madeiran emigrants in Venezuela offset the exit of resident population.

The decrease in the resident population is explained by the negative natural change (-553 persons). The municipalities of Santa Cruz (0.89%), Porto Santo (0.22%) and Ponta do Sol (0.03%) were the only in which the crude rate of population change was positive, while the lowest values in this variable were registered in the municipalities of Santana and Machico (-1.0% and -0.89%, respectively).
