YANGON, Myanmar, October 11, 2017 - Almost half of Myanmar's population is younger than 25 years (46.5 percent). Four million young adults constitute the state' s brightest years. However, a new Population Survey shows that many of them grow up in difficult circumstances that affect their lives' potential: "There is an immediate need to make investments in sanitary facilities, public services, and healthcare in order to provide a sound and secure basis for youngsters, especially in the countryside.
Myanmar's UNFPA Representative Janet Jackson says: "Children who have a good starting point in a well-groomed home are better prepared to become grown-ups who are healthful and prosperous and can help the country's socioeconomic wellbeing. Particularly important is the specific promotion of disadvantaged youngsters.
This includes those in cabins and other poor homes, those who have never gone to college, those who grow up without TV or wireless and those with disabilities. These results are taken from the thematic report on the 2014 Myanmar Census issued by the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population and the UNFPA.
It shows that only two out of three eleven-year-olds (68 percent) have finished elementary education. With older kids, the number of visits to schools decreases significantly: One in three 14-year-olds (32 percent) has finished secondary education. Only one in four 18-year-olds has finished high school ('Gymnasium') (23.7 percent).
Nearly 300,000 young Myanmar women are already mature (13 percent), of whom 89,000 have already been born. Myanmar's young population is a great resource for the country's growth. It is important that governance focuses on extending the scope of literacy - which includes information on sexual heredity - to all groups in the community so that the fullest use is made of every young person's full capacity, no one is lagging behind and the longest reaching," says Janet Jackson, UNFPA Representative for Myanmar.
It also reaffirms the compromises that young Myanmar girls must make between work and home. More than twice as many young single working females (67 percent) are employed in the city than young maternal marriages (29 percent). However, marriages and childrens often mean that they have to give up their study or work and give up their incomes.
Myanmar's modernization requires accessible childcare facilities that allow young girls to finish their studies or go on working after the birth of their children," says Janet Jackson, UNFPA Representative for Myanmar. Myanmar could profit from a "demographic dividend" according to the survey. It is a phenomena that has been an important driving force for Asian tigers' fast pace of development, and will be possible if the number of young adults between the ages of 15 and 25 is high and growing.
However, in order to achieve a demographical payout, Myanmar must be well positioned. There are parts of the globe where many young people who are discouraged and unable to find work in dignity have contributed to sociopolitical insecurity. Over the next four years, one million new positions will be needed to secure work for Myanmar's large population of young people.
Myanmar needs to create a million new job opportunities for young Chinese in order to realise its teenage Asian tiger potential," says Janet Jackson, UNFPA representative for Myanmar. UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, provides a place where every child is pregnant, every birth is secure and the full range of young people's potentials are realised.
Key results of the 2014 Myanmar Population and Housing Census were released in May 2015. It is part of a range of topical summaries on various themes. They analyze the relationships between different dates and provide insight into what the figures say about people's life in Myanmar.
Censuses were taken by the Myanmar government. The UNFPA has provided and will continue to give UNFPA funding and technology for the current cycle. Approximately 1,090,000 individuals who wanted to be identified as Rohingya were not included in the survey. The UNFPA recognises that their non-counting is a serious deficiency of the population and a major worry about the protection of fundamental freedoms and considers it crucial that all of them be re-established as soon as possible.
It was also not estimated that 69,700 persons in Kayin and 46,600 in Kachin. Overall, an estimate of 1.2 million persons were not enrolled in the survey. Those reckoned 1. 2 million group were enclosed in the whole group of 51. 5 large integer. But since no feature information is available for those not listed, the information and analyses presented in this review relate only to those listed during the population survey.
