The Brazil population explosion story is getting bigger
The Brazil Population Explosion Story is getting Bigger article Brazil’s population explosion has grown at a faster pace than at any other time in the past half-century, according to the latest government statistics.
The government has recorded 1.65 million births and 1.7 million deaths in 2016, making it the most populous country in the world and one of the fastest-growing in the industrialised world.
“We’re seeing a lot of growth,” said Jose Maria Avila, the deputy head of the World Health Organization (WHO).
“There are more people.
We’re seeing an increase in fertility rates, the birth rate, and the death rate.
There’s a lot happening in Brazil.”
It’s not the first time the Brazilian population has increased at such a fast rate.
The country’s population was only 1.1 million at the end of the 20th century, but the growth was accompanied by a massive economic boom and a sharp increase in the use of contraceptives.
The fertility rate has also been on the rise in recent years, but it’s the birthrate that has been the biggest driver.
Between 1960 and 2014, the country’s birthrate rose from 1.08 per cent to 1.17 per cent, and its death rate from 1 per cent in 2014 to 1 per 100,000 people in 2016.
This year, the population of Brazil has grown by almost 9 per cent.
The main driver of the increase in population is the country has had a large number of births, with more than a million births in 2016 alone.
More than half of Brazil’s births have been to children under 15, and that number is expected to double in the next decade.
“Brazil has had an extremely high number of babies since the 1990s,” said Avil, referring to the countrys rapid growth.
“This is because of the social, political and economic changes we have undergone in the last 15 years.”
Brazil’s economy is still struggling to catch up with the rapid increase in its population.
The economy grew at just 0.6 per cent last year, with unemployment reaching almost 10 per cent as the country continues to struggle with chronic poverty.
Inflation has also soared, as the government tries to balance its budget while also increasing social spending to help its citizens stay out of poverty.
While the growth in population has been quite rapid, Brazil has also had a dramatic rise in violent crime, as crime in some neighbourhoods has increased and others have become more dangerous.
The most violent neighbourhoods are in Rio de Janeiro and the favelas of São Paulo, which have seen a sharp rise in the number of killings.
The biggest cities in the country, such as São Bernardo, São Alexandre and São Miguel, have seen the highest numbers of killings and drug-related offences, as well as the highest murder rates in Brazil.
“There has been a rise in killings, drug-trafficking, and violence in many of these areas,” Avil said.
“And that’s not just a problem in favela neighbourhoods, it’s also happening in major cities, where many of the areas have seen crime increases in recent months.”
