The human capital


The municipality of Olbia has a population density (ratio of inhabitants/kmq) more than twice that of Sardinia and more than three times that of the Gallura territory . The city expresses a strong appeal to the population of the interior, resulting in a demographic shift that can be basically defined as a migratory flow from the interior to the coast, richer in productive initiatives, infrastructure and services.

Olbia differs from the provincial and regional average to have a younger population, a sign of demographic dynamism and a higher birth rate.

The active population flow (working age population whose percentage in Olbia is close to 70% of the total) from inland to coastal areas has important effects on the demographic dynamics of the province: the appeal of young people in coastal municipalities, thanks to the opportunities offered by the tourism and services sector, it increases consumption and the local economy and influences the lowering  resident population average age of the in coastal areas. On the contrary, the flow of migrants from the inner areas of the younger generations is helping to weaken, with a multiplier effect, the well-being, consumption and income generated in the inland municipalities, increasing the negative trend of these areas and ultimately leading to the progressive ageing of the population.

                                                                                                     Natural population movement


The natural population movement in a year is determined by the difference between births and deaths and is also called natural balance. The two lines of the graph below show the trend in births and deaths in recent years. The trend of the natural balance is displayed by the area between the two lines.

The graph below, called the Pyramid of Ages, represents the distribution of the resident population in Olbia by age, gender and citizenship as of 1 January 2015.

The population is reported by five-year age classes on the Y axis, while on the X axis there are two mirror bar graphs with males (left) and females (right)

In general, the shape of this type of graph depends on the demographic trend population, with variations visible in periods of strong population growth or birth declines due to wars or other events.

In Italy it had the shape similar to a pyramid until the 1960s, i.e. until the years of the demographic boom.
