Births in Germany from Portuguese mothers, 1960-2020
Inês Vidigal *
Analysis of a long statistical series on births in Germany of mothers of foreign nationality. The series, which is annual, begins in 1960 and ends 60 years later, in 2020. The analysis of the series makes it possible to identify the evolution of births in German territory of mothers of Portuguese nationality and their relationship with the evolution of births in Germany in general. Throughout the series, this evolution is marked by the greater weight in the births of European and Asian origins.
