Sejong, Yonhap News Agency, November 23. A report released by the Korean Statistical Office on the 23rd showed that the birth population in the third quarter of this year decreased by 3.7% year-on-year to 64,085 people, setting the lowest record for the third quarter since the start of relevant statistics in 1981.

As of the first three quarters of this year, the cumulative birth population decreased by 5.2% year-on-year to 192,223 people. Taking into account the trend of fewer births as the end of the year approaches, the number of births this year may only be around 250,000.

The total fertility rate in the third quarter was 0.79, a year-on-year decrease of 0.03, which was the lowest value in the third quarter since the relevant statistics began in 2009. Looking at the fertility rate alone (the number of live births per 1,000 women in a certain age group), the fertility rate of women aged 35 to 39 increased by 0.9 year-on-year to 45.5; the fertility rate of women over 40 years old increased by 0.3 year-on-year to 4.1 people, a record high over the same period since the start of relevant statistics. The fertility rates of those aged 30 to 34 (a year-on-year decrease of 2.9, and the following are all year-on-year), those aged between 25 and 29 (-3.2) and those under 24 (-0.5) all decreased.

The number of multi-birth families showed a decreasing trend. Among the babies born in the third quarter, 62.7% were the eldest child, 30.5% were the second child, and 6.8% were the youngest child.

Looking at the indicators for September this year alone, the birth population decreased by 0.1% year-on-year to 21,885. The number of births in a single month has declined for 82 consecutive months since December 2015. The number of deaths increased by 13.8% year-on-year to 29,199, a new high since the start of relevant statistics. As a result, the number of deaths is greater than the number of births, and the population of South Korea has shown a net decline trend for 35 consecutive months since November 2019.

According to an analysis by the Statistical Office, the aging population has increased the number of deaths, and the new crown epidemic has superimposed it, leading to a net decrease in population. (Finish)
