Jeollanamdo scores highest mortality rate per 100,000 people in S. Korea


According to Jeollanamdos population data released by Rep. Kim Han Jeong of the ruling Democratic Party on Thursday, the Provinces population decreased from 2.28 million in 1992 to 1.98 million in 2004 and to 1.88 million in 2018.


The number of senior citizens older than 65 took 22.4% of Jeonnams total population. Jeollanamdo is the first metropolitan province to become a super aging society in the country.


Among 22 cities and counties of the Province, 18 have more than 20% of their citizens older than 65 and 38.9% of Goheung residents are seniors.


Jeonnams mortality rate in the recent 3 years was also the highest in the country.


In 2018, the Provinces mortality rate per 100,000 people was at 917.3, which is 1.6 times higher than national average of 582.5.


Rep. Kim urged the provincial officials to see the reality and called for bespoke population related policies to the province.
