Title Constant Decrease in Both Male and Female Populations in Villages with Fishery Households
Date 2017-08-28

This graph demonstrates the trends in the male and female populations in the villages with fishery households in the period of 1996-2016,

which was collected by the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Survey conducted by the Statistics Korea. The population of villages

with fishery households reached a peak with 170,000 women and 161,000 men: however, it has constantly decreased,

both around 117,000 in 2001 and 105,000 women and 106,000 men in 2006.

In 2011, the female population was 81,000 persons and the male population was 78,000 persons. After further decreases,

the populations of women and men were approximately 63,000 persons respectively, which implies that they are less than 40%

of the populations in 1996.

The female population in the villages with fishery households remains nearly half of the total population, 

which accounted for 51.3% in 1996, 50.1% in 2001, and 49.7% in 2006. In 2011, the percentage reached 50.7%.

According to the 2016 survey, the ratio of the female population was 49.9%, being marginally smaller than that of the male population.
