Summary

Life expectancy at birth is growing in Portugal. There were less births and deaths.
Also less weddings and people got married at older ages. Families had fewer children.
During 2011, the notified cases of AIDS as well as the number of deaths by HIV decreased. By contrast the number of deaths by cancer has increased.
Early leavers from education and training maintained the reduction trajectory.
A growing number of families had access to computers, to Internet and to broadband at home.
A lower occupation at hotels and less travels abroad for holidays.
The police authorities have registered fewer crimes.
GDP per capita has decreased, in real terms; the final consumption of families and the amount of loans for home acquisition has also declined.

These are just some of the main conclusions of a larger portrait, resumed in the present press release which can be found in the Statistics Portugal’s website.
