It is mainly a mountainous country: 13,3% of the territory is 0 up to 300 m high, 25,5% between 300 and 600 m, and 61,2% over 600 m of altitude above sea level.Albanian Outsourcing
Republic of Albania is included in the belt of subtropical Mediterranean climate, which significantly affects the elements of nature, such as the hydrographic network, vegetation and relief. The climate of Republic of Albania is very suitable for the economic-social life and activity of people. Even though Republic of Albania is a small country, the climatic changes are big, due to the very broken mountainous relief. In the regional division of the climate of Republic of Albania, the basic factors are sun radiation, geographical latitude, general atmospheric circulation and local factors. The values of different climatic elements are a consequence of the interaction of these factors. They influence the creation of a number of zones and sub-zones with more or less homogenous climatic features. The four main areas are Mediterranean field zone – Mediterranean hilly zone -Mediterranean pre-mountainous zone – Mediterranean mountainous zone. The sea affects more the first two zones during the whole year. The average temperature oscillates from 15ºC in the field zone to 2ºC in the north of the mountainous zone. In January, the coldest month of the year, the minimal temperature in general oscillates from -5ºC in the field zone, to -30ºC in the north and northeast of the mountainous zone. The average of the rainfall oscillates between 650 mm in a southern sub-zone of the pre-mountainous zone, and 4000 mm in the Alps. In the largest part of the country, summer is a dry and rainless season.Albanian Outsourcing
During 1991-1998, Republic of Albania experienced demographic changes dominated by the negative rate of population increase, migration from the villages towards the towns and from the remote areas towards the capital, the massive emigration and the decrease of births. The re-urbanization and the overpopulation are the main existing problems at local level in Republic of Albania. The emigration of Republic of Albanians abroad is higher than the other countries of the Central and Eastern Europe (3 times higher than the average emigration at present). The main sources of information on the population of Republic of Albania are the projections of the Institute of Statistics in Tirana, and the data of the registry offices.
