Myanmar CensusCensus Myanmar
YANGON, Myanmar: There is a new census bulletin that estimates 13. Five million of Myanmar's inhabitants, one fourth of its total populace, are living in apartments made of material that can quickly degrade. 8 million dwellings - new or with upgraded roofs, partitions and/or floorings - are needed to meet the immediate needs of those whose houses are inadequate or very poor.
"Myanmar's residential problems need to be addressed in a holistic way. Room is also a crucial component for worthy living. There is a need for houses that provide both family and couple privacy," says Janet Jackson, UNFPA Representative for Myanmar. These results come from the thematic report on living conditions and household facilities in 2014 issued by the Government of Myanmar and UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund.
The majority of homes are made up of pairs with offspring (41.4 percent) and pairs with offspring and other family members (17.2 percent). While more than two-thirds of homes (69.5 percent) have an" enhanced potable spring ", this still means that 16 million Myanmar's population, especially in the countryside, have no direct connection to clean potable waters.
While three-fourths of homes (74.3 percent) have at their disposal "improved hygiene", this still means that 13 million persons, again especially in the countryside, have no hygienic use of a lavatory or lavatory that keeps faeces from coming into direct physical contact. However, there are still some 13 million persons who do not have hygienic use. Fifteen million of these individuals have no lavatory at all.
"They are particularly susceptible and at great peril for those who have to take the pressure off themselves and do their own emenstrual health outdoors or in a joint institution, especially after dark," says Janet Jackson, UNFPA Representative for Myanmar. 6% of homes use non-sustainable forms of wood, especially wood, for their kitchen.
55% use non-sustainable power resources for illumination, among them candle, fuel, battery and generator. Firstly, the casing constructions should be upgraded so that wood can be used for safe boiling. 5% of homes have TVs, 35 percent have them. 5% to a station, and 3.
Five percent to a computer. 9% said they had wireless connectivity, although this number is significantly higher today than it was in 2014 when the census was made. Approximately one third of homes (30.3 percent), especially in the countryside, had no direct contact with information and communications equipment.
7% of homes have motorbike accessibility, 35. 9% on a bike, and 3. 1% on a vehicle. Whereas homeowning in Myanmar is high at 85. It is 5 percent lower in city areas (66 percent) and, as anticipated, also among younger population.
6% of householders between 25-34 years of age own the house in which they are living. "For many youngsters, especially those with familial duties, the safety and health of a home is as important as that of oldersters. Residential census information requires targeted intervention, such as improving mortgage availability for individuals of all ages," says Janet Jackson, UNFPA Representative for Myanmar.
Results of the study show large disparities in living arrangements between cities and countryside and between states, areas and counties, not least in the life span of the building material used to build houses and in accessibility to information and communications equipment. Census results on residential and domestic facilities can influence policies and plans at both national and local level.
It also provides important benchmarking tools for Myanmar's progress towards achieving domestic and global MDGs. 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.
They analyze the relationships between different dates and what the figures say about people's life in Myanmar. This census was taken by the Myanmar government. The UNFPA has provided and will continue to give the census its full technological and funding assistance. The census did not include an estimate of 1,090,000 individuals who wanted to be identified as Rohingya.
The UNFPA recognises that their non-counting is a serious deficiency of the census 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 estimated that 69,700 persons in Kayin State and 46,600 in Kachin State were not included. The census did not include an overall estimate of 1.2 million persons.
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 census. Cadastral information is available on the UNFPA website or on the Department of population' s website.
