Population decline continues in Gwangju


A Buk-gu based lawmaker, Kim Yong Jip, from Gwangju City Council urged the necessity of proper job creation measures in preparation for the growing low birth rate and population outflow of the city.


At the general meeting held on the 16th, he pointed out that Gwangju has been suffering from low birth rates and population outflow for many years leading to future uncertainty.


According to the record, the City's population has been on the decline for five years since it peaked at 1.5 million in 2014. The number has dropped by 20,000 as of June this year.


The number of children aged between 0 and 14 has decreased by more than 30,000 per year over the past five years.


Reportedly, the regions biggest drop in population are those in their 20s, mainly due to lack of jobs or educational opportunities.
