    Default The Koreans of North Korea - Isolated State, northern Korean Peninsula



    The Korean people are an ethnic group originating in the Korean peninsula and Manchuria. Koreans are one of the most ethnically and linguistically homogeneous groups in the world.

    Names

    South Koreans call Koreans Han-guk-in (한국인; 韓國人)or simply 한인/Han-in for South Koreans living abroador informally Hanguk saram (한국 사람; 韓國 사람), while North Koreans call Koreans Chosŏn-in (조선인; 朝鮮人) or Chosŏn saram (조선 사람; 朝鮮 사람). See Names of Korea, Korean romanization, Hangul (한글) and Hanja (한자).



    North Korea Data

    Estimating the size, growth rate, sex ratio, and age structure of North Korea's population has been extremely difficult. Until release of official data in 1989, the 1963 edition of the North Korea Central Yearbook was the last official publication to disclose population figures. After 1963 demographers used varying methods to estimate the population. They either totaled the number of delegates elected to the Supreme People's Assembly (each delegate representing 50,000 people before 1962 and 30,000 people afterward) or relied on official statements that a certain number of persons, or percentage of the population, was engaged in a particular activity. Thus, on the basis of remarks made by President Kim Il Sung in 1977 concerning school attendance, the population that year was calculated at 17.2 million persons. During the 1980s, health statistics, including life expectancy and causes of mortality, were gradually made available to the outside world.

    In 1989 the Central Statistics Bureau released demographic data to the United Nations Fund for Population Activities (UNFPA) in order to secure the UNFPA's assistance in holding North Korea's first nationwide census since the establishment of the state in 1948. Although the figures given to the United Nations might have been distorted, it appears that in line with other attempts to open itself to the outside world, the North Korean regime has also opened somewhat in the demographic realm. Although the country lacks trained demographers, accurate data on household registration, migration, and births and deaths are available to North Korean authorities. According to the United States scholar Nicholas Eberstadt and demographer Judith Banister, vital statistics and personal information on residents are kept by agencies on the ri (village, the local administrative unit) level in rural areas and the dong (district or block) level in urban areas.

    isnt it kinda foolish to rely on official true kim-jong provided numbers?
    For example even the total population number appears to be false, its not 17 millions, its barely 10 millions. My number comes from average lifespan and the indepenent fact of 2 million soldiers.

    Retards, dwarves and cretins need not be estimated, they are all destroyed in the name of socialist racial purity. Obviously still a slippery slopes towards worthless genetic material, but nothing passes that isnt fit for military service.

    On the one hand less obese and untrained people, on the other many show definitively, especially in comparison to South Koreans, unfavourable traits because of malnourishment and bad living conditions, like many of the poor Chinese farmers too, for comparison.

    Even racially a difference seems to be present, with North Koreans having more Tungid and South Koreans more progressive Palaemongolid, together with the common North and Middle Sinid base.

    Koreans seem to have something different than what Japanese don't have and that is more of squarish faces.

    Japanese on average have more moon faces rather which makes them more different from Koreans.

    Yet they've clearly absorbed things from the West. Their clothes, military equipment, modern building styles, electricity...
