The percentage of males to the total population of Portugal is just under 50% . And the percentage of females to the total population is just over 50%.. These figures are ba…sed on information that is calculated from population estimates of July 2005, and that is posted at the following site: http://www.infofranchise.com/detail.cfm?IdNotizia=8131&IdSezione=18&strKey=com .. At the above site, the population of Portugal is broken down into three age groups: 0-14 years old; 15-64; and 65 and over. The total population is estimated at 10,566, 212. And the findings are the following: Those in the 0-14 age group represent 16.6% of the total population, with males numbering 916,234 , and females 839,935. Those in the 15-64 age group represent 66.3%, with males numbering 3,468,844 , and females 3,538,779; and those in the 65 and over age group represent 17.1%, with males numbering 744,787 , and females 1,057,633.

Portuguese, Spanish, and English are languages number eight, four, and three respectively in number of native speakers. Portugese has 175 native speakers. Spanish has 350-400 …million native speakers. English has 500 million native speakers.. So, total, they have 1.025 billion native speakers. Assuming a world population of 6.7 billion (20 million higher than an August 14th estimate.) So, together about 15.3% of the population have one of those three as a native language.. And I think that it's worth mentioning that the Chinese dialects have more speakers than those three combined. So, if you master their script, and speak those three languages, you could communicate with 30%+ of the world (+ because have these as second languages with various levels of fluency, which is why they are not counted in those figures.)
About 6.25% - around 350 million.
About 500,000,000 people speak English as a first language, so that would be around 7% of all humans speak English as a first language. As any other language but first, it is …estimated that 2,100,000,000 humans speak English, or about 30%.

Roughly 500,000,000 people speak English as a native language. Since there are about 7,000,000,000 humans on Earth, about 7% of people's native language is English.
