Datapoint Diu Indo-Portuguese/Size of speaker community

The native-speaker community, including a few highly-fluent non-native speakers who use the language in their daily lives, is presently estimated at around 170 to 200 people. This figure excludes the native speakers of the language living outside the territory, whose numbers are unknown but probably not very significant. In addition to this strictly-defined speech community, there is an undetermined number of people who have some knowledge of the language - ranging from formulaic to rather fluent - but who do not use it regularly.
