According to watchtutorials, the population of Portugal is estimated to be approximately 10.3 million people. The population is mostly concentrated in the coastal region and the urban areas of the country. The population is ethnically diverse, with a mix of native Iberian, Mediterranean, and northern European peoples. The majority of the population identifies as Portuguese, followed by Brazilian, African-born Portuguese, and other minority groups. In terms of religion, Roman Catholicism is the dominant faith in Portugal, with an estimated 81% of the population identifying as Roman Catholic. Other religious groups include Protestantism (7%), other Christian denominations (2%), Islam (1%), Judaism (0.1%), and other faiths (3%). In terms of language, Portuguese is the official language spoken by over 95% of the population. English proficiency among adults in Portugal is increasing due to increased contact with foreign tourists and businesses from English-speaking countries such as the United States and United Kingdom. Other languages spoken in Portugal include Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Chinese among many others. Portugal has a very young population due to migration and birth rates; 33% of its total population are aged under 25 years old while only 11% are aged 65 or over. A large percentage of young people seek employment abroad due to a lack of job opportunities within Portugal itself; this has resulted in a shrinking working-age population which contributes to an aging overall demographic that may lead to economic problems down the line if not addressed properly through policy initiatives or other measures such as encouraging immigration or higher birth rates among native Portuguese citizens.
