Portugal – Demographic description
The 108 citizens who participated in the WWViews Consultation on Climate and Energy in Portugal were very close to the distribution of the general population of the country, in terms of gender, age and also region. There was a discrepancy in the level of education. There were less participants with lower education (high school degree or less), while those with higher education degrees were more than the double of the proportion of such people in the general population. Although citizens were recruited from all parts of the country, there is some over representation of residents in the Lisbon area. Members of ENGO were also in slightly greater number than their proportion in the general population, but the numbered only 8 participants.
