Brazil has a surprisingly low (and decreasing) population growth rate as its mentioned in Brazil population density map; despite it being home to the largest number of Catholics in the world, the majority of women in Brazil use some form of contraception, which is often government-subsidized or free, even though the Catholic Church retains its stance that the use of contraceptives is inherently wrong. Within the space of just one generation, families have gone from having more than six children to having just one or two, and the share of Catholics in the population is dwindling, too.
Brazil population is very diverse, comprising many races and ethnic groups as you can see in Brazil population density map. In general, Brazilians trace their origins from four sources: Amerindians, Europeans, Africans and Asians. Brazil has conducted a periodical population census since 1872. Since 1940, this census has been carried out decennially. Scanned versions of the forms for each census distributed in Brazil since 1960 are available on-line from IPUMS International.
