Depopulation And Aging: Galicia Toward The Year 2020


  • Hernández Borge, Julio


The demographic aging is one of the major challenges which there have to face the governments of the developed countries by its numerous economic and social implications. Galicia, as Spain and Europe, presents nowadays a demographic evolved regime that has brought with it an aging of the population structure at the time that it has helped to depopulate most of its territory, on having been tied to an intense rural exodus. This one is a situation that will continue worsening in the next years, so that the demographic projections for 2020 announce a decrease of the number of inhabitants of this region and a slowdown in the growth of Spain and Europe.
