The Portuguese population has been strongly influenced by migration processes as its mentioned in Portugal population map. Many nationals emigrated in the 1960s, 1970s, and to a lesser extent in the 1980s in search of higher living standards in the more affluent economies of Western Europe and elsewhere. About 4.5 million Portuguese now live abroad, or almost one-half of the domestic population, but better domestic economic conditions in recent years—particularly since the country joined the European Union (EU) in 1986—have changed this. By 2000, Portugal experienced a net immigration of 0.5 people per 1,000 population. In 1998, there were fewer than 178,000 immigrants legally residing in Portugal. These immigrants originated mainly from the country former African and South American colonies and from EU countries.
