100% Lisbon

A statistical chain reaction

By Haug / Kaegi / Wetzel

Lisbon is the center of the largest metropolitan area in Europe but only 500,000 inhabitants. More than 54% of Lisbon’s residents are women, 25% are aged 65 or over and one out of every ten people are foreign nationals. Last year, Lisbon was visited by 6.2 million tourists, and every day 450,000 people come into the city to study or work.  

100% Lisbon takes the official statistics of the city and gives them a human face, placing on the stage one hundred of its inhabitants that represents the entire population of the city, divided into categories such as gender, age, nationality, family unit and area of residence. Each of them also speaks for him or herself: about their lives, their joys and their sorrows.
