Burma - Facts & Numbers
The year 2010 was an important year in the story of Myanmar and also for the story of the De La Salle brothers. Sunday, November 14, the brothers were celebrating 150 years of work with the arms in this state. Burma was invaded by the British in the nineteenth century and stayed part of the British Empire until 1948, when it was founded as a settlement.
It was a democracy at the timeframe, but the murder of General Aung San and his transitional administration before formal autonomy marked the beginning of several incidents leading to the putsch of the army Junta. In 1958, the army first took over Myanmar at the Prime Minister's behest and led the nation for 18 month before volunteering to give up on it.
Prime Minister has been repressed, the Constitutional Treaty has been repealed, the business sector has been nationalized and materials that may be hostile to the administration, such as impartial papers. A number of catastrophic demonstrations erupted in 2007 about the country's disastrous economical climate, among them the increasing costs of gasoline known as the "saffron revolution", with the administration again taking action against demonstrators, of whom many Buddhist friars held peacefully.
At present, the Burmese army jungle, whose ideology is founded on theories of socialism, calls itself the State Peace and Development Council and oppresses those it sees as a menace to its domination, with the number of Myanmar's detainees currently estimated at over 2,100. Recent stats are hard to obtain due to the close character of the Myanmar administration, and they are not too busy collecting the information, and organizations such as the World Bank no longer keep a record, as they are not currently conducting national construction with Myanmar due to disagreements with the administration.
Burma has 53,999,804 inhabitants, with an average yearly increase of 1.084%. Myanmar has 136 different ethnical groups with 136 different ethnical groups: Over one-fourth of the people live below the 32nd atlas. Alphabetization levels in the county are unexpectedly good at 89.
9 percent of the total demographic is considered educated, with a sex distribution of 93. 4 per cent women (figures do not change as no updates or research was carried out in 2010). Burma continues to make headway in this area, with the United Nations report that it is on the right path towards the Millennium Development Goals of general elementary schooling.
Myanmar resident who does not survive until the age of 40 is 19.1%. Whilst the HIV incidence of adults in Myanmar is low from a statistical point of view (about 0.6%), the Philippines is facing very realistic problems in dealing with the risk of the outbreak and helping those who suffer from the outbreak.
Approximately 240,000 live with HIV in the countryside and the majority of the blame for the health services provided to the poorer-off. Currently, less than one third of those affected by HIV are currently being treated with anti-retroviral therapy, which is an essential part of caring for those affected by HIV in order to prevent the development of the condition into AIDS.
Although the issue seems to be mitigated, if those affected continue to receive insufficient care, the countrys public healthcare system could face a very serious public healthcare system emergency, making the adoption of appropriate policies essential. Civilian riots and ethnical conflict have resulted in minimum government-sanctioned immigration and in unavailability of rate tally.
Few 33% of the local populations reside in city areas, with the majority of the inhabitants of rural areas being made up of ethnical groups such as the Shan, Akha, Lahu, Karen and Mon. Marginalization of ethnical minority groups by the current administration is contributing to the 503,000 internal displacement cases in Myanmar. Burma is a completely enclosed land, which makes it one of a kind in the area of immigration.
Most of those who flee the mainland are those belonging to minority groups, with Thailand as a shared goal for those who leave the state. Remark: There is a general shortage of agreement as to whether the name Myanmar or Burma is appropriate, with the current administration using the name Myanmar, but states like the United States of America do not recognize this as a legal state name.
The name Myanmar was used here for reasons of conformity with other works by Lasallian and De La Salle.
