Geoeconomic Region of Centro-Sul

Centro-Sul (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˌsẽtɾuˈsuw], South-Central) is the Southeastern, Southern and Central-West regions of Brazil (see Brazil Regional Division), excluding the north of Minas Gerais and most of Mato Grosso and along with some of Tocantins.

Demographics[edit]

In this region live around 135 million of Brazilians. The most remarkable characteristics of the region is the human domination over the nature: Only ~5% of the native vegetation is left. Other very strong characteristic is populational and economic: most industries are concentrated in the area and responsible for ~75% of the national GDP. The vast majority of the population (+90%) is of mostly European ancestry, and nearly half of the population self-identify as White Brazilian.

The region also is characterized by having a high standard of living (HDI of ~0.850, in average), where social problems are less problematic than in other regions (at least, in rural and small-medium sized cities).
