Gender and National identity in Brazil
Brazilian National Identity at a Crossroads
At the turn of the century, Brazil's population was 17,438,434.
By 1950 it had grown to 51,944,397, and in 1970 it reached 93,139,037.
By 1991 Brazil was the world's sixth most populous country, with about 2.7 percent of the world's 5.3 billion people or 147,053,940 inhabitants.
In July 1996, the population was counted as being 157,079,573, but estimated in 1997 to be nearly 160 million.
Projections indicate a total population of 169 million in 2000 and 211 million in 2020, and population stability at about 250 million in 2050.
The population growth rate for the 1992 to 2000 period is estimated at 1.5 percent per year.
As a result of the decline in mortality and continued high fertility during the 1950s and 1960s, the average growth rate was nearly 3 percent per year.
Subsequent to a decrease in total fertility, the growth rate dropped to 2.5 percent in the 1970s and 1.9 percent in the 1980s.
