In the population aged 15 and over, the percentage of men (61%) is higher than that of women (58%). The younger population (especially between the ages of 15 and 24) has a large percentage of single mothers.
The Myanmar administration carried out its last population and residential cycle in April 2014, more than three decennia since the last one in 1983. Extensive population and residential counts were carried out in 1973, 1983 and 2014 after the country's liberation. An unparalleled characteristic of a denomination is its capacity to deliver information down to the bottom management levels.
This last survey was carried out by the Ministry of Immigration and Population with the support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and our developing co-fund. Myanmar's population has grown from 2.7 million in 1872 under UK settlement to 10.5 million in 1901, 13.2 million in 1921, 28.9 million in 1973, 35.3 million in 1983 and 51.5 million in 2014.
Myanmar's population is 76 people per km2. Myanmar, the biggest nation by geographic area in Southeast Asia, has one of the lowliest population concentrations in the area, similar to Cambodia and Malaysia.7 With population growth in all states and regions, population concentration has risen across the entire state.
Yangon, the trading capitol of Myanmar, is also the most heavily settled area of the state.
Ageing in Myanmar | The Gerontologist
In this issue of the issue, we look at the elderly in Myanmar, a land of over 50 million people. Burma is of particular interest to scientists and political decision-makers because of its overall poor and modest ageing population. Although research on older people has increased in recent years, it is still scarce.
There is empiric proof that older people in Myanmar are in relatively worse physical condition than in neighbouring states. A lot of people are living in dire need and are dependent on the financial assistance of their familys. For the future, Myanmar faces important issues, among them population changes that are reducing the accessibility of care for the elderly and the growing strain of long-term diseases.
