Title Demography
Alternate Title Total Population Growth [48]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract Between 1990 and 2000, an above-average population growth of 7.8% was recorded in the Alpine Convention area, compared to only 3.2% for the EU-15 countries. However, there are significant disparities between the Alpine countries and regions, and even between adjacent municipalities. Demographic, economic and social factors drive the migration process and lead to a polarization of booming and depopulated areas in urban and peripheral centres and also in major and minor valleys. Access to services, goods and places of work is more difficult for people coming from peripheral areas, which makes living outside larger agglomerations unattractive.
