CAPE VERDE

Demographics 2/3


Many foreigners from other parts of the world settled in Cape Verde as their permanent country.

 Most of them were Dutch, French, British (English), Arab and Jewish (from Lebanon and Morocco), Chinese (especially from Macau), India, Indonesia, South America, American and Brazilian (including people of
Portuguese and African descent). 

All of these have been absorbed into the mestiço population.

The high degree of genetic and ethnic mixture of individuals is a result of centuries of migration.

 It is not unusual to encounter persons with dark skin and blond hair and blue eyes, and persons with light skin and black hair.

Around 95% of the population is Christian.

 More than 85% of the population is nominally Roman Catholic, though for a minority of the population Catholicism is syncretized with African influences. 

The largest Protestant denomination is the Church of the Nazarene; other groups include the Seventh-day Adventist Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Assemblies of God, the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God, and other Pentecostal and evangelical groups.  LINK
