Tendências de concentração regional no interior português – o caso de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro
AbstractA população portuguesa não foge para o litoral. A população portuguesa das áreas do interior norte (Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro), num primeiro nível de movimentação, procura migrar para as vilas sedes de munício e/ou para as cidades da região. Este trabalho identifica esta hipótese como válida para explicar a distribuição das populações da área em estudo, a partir do século XIX. Assim, o interior do país está a assistir, não a uma litoralização, mas sim a uma urbanização regional. The Portuguese population does not run to the seaside areas. The Portuguese population from the inner north of Portugal (Tras-os-Montes and Alto Douro), in a first stage, intends to migrate to the small towns, head of the municipalities, and/or to the cities of the region. This work identifies this last hypothesis as correct to explain the population distribution of the studied area, since the 19th century. Therefore, the inner areas of the country are mainly being characterized by regional urbanization movements, and not by the widely enunciated litoralization.
