“UN Future Forum” Korean Birthrate Hike Campaign
1. In May 2006 the Korean total fertility rate tumbled to the world record low 1.08, down from
the previous lowest of 1.16 in 2004, the South Korean National Statistical Office said.
2. South Korea’s birthrate falls far behind those of other advanced economies: the US 2.05,
France 1.9, Italy 1.33, and Japan 1.29, the world’s most aged society
3. South Korea’s birthrate declining over the past few decades from 4.53 in 1970 to 1.08 in 2005,
which is significantly lower than the replacement rate of 2.1.
4. The government in May 2006 announced a comprehensive policy that includes pouring 10
trillion won ($11 billion) into childcare subsidies. This is the first time Korea has come up
with such broad measures since it began to encounter the low birthrate problem in 1984.
5. 1 in 3 married women rejects motherhood by saying it is ok to have no children, a state-run
think tank the Korea Institute of Health and Society said in March 2006. Single men and
women also prefer to have only one child after marriage. Half of single women also answered
that it is better not to tie the knot at all, report entitled `Investigation on ‘Low Birthrate and
Study on its Comprehensive Measures’, which was based on interviews with 3,800 married
women between the ages of 20 and 44, and 2,670 single women and men in 2005. Korea
suffers from both a fast aging population as well as a low birthrate. Couples avoid having
more children because of high education and childcare expenses. Couples spends half their
income on their children’s education, the largest proportion among living expenses.
6. To help working parents combine work and family, the government will enhance its
assistance to childcare centers. It plans to double the number of state-run childcare centers
to 2,700 in 2010 as well as tax breaks, social insurance benefits and other incentives.
Over 61% of women left the workforce either just before or after giving birth.

Reasons for low birthrate: women rejecting
motherhood, high overseas study spending
SPENDING ON OVERSEAS STUDY HITS RECORD HIGH
1. Spending on overseas study hits new high in January 2006. Koreans’ spending on overseas education hit a
record high last year as parents sought higher-quality education for their children while escaping from
surging private education costs at home. The Korean Educational Development Institute said in a report that
the number of elementary, middle and high school students who left the country for study in the period
increased more than 60 percent from 10,498 recorded a year earlier.
2. The number of Korean students studying abroad has shot up more than 10-fold over the past six years due
to an increasing demand for early English education. According to the recent report, the number of students
going overseas swelled from 1,562 in 1998 to 16,446 in 2004. A 30-fold number of elementary school
students have gone abroad during the six-year period amid the boom in early English education with fewer
legal restrictions.
3. The government is trying to curb the increasing number of students traveling for study by introducing a
five-year human resources development plan in January 2006. The plan includes initiatives to strengthen
English education in elementary schools by expanding English immersion programs and English classes
for first- and second-graders. It is part of the efforts made by the Ministry of Education to put the brakes on
the accelerating costs spent on private tutoring for early English education. Despite that, Korean children
are consuming more time and money to go abroad for study.
KOREA IS AGING FASTEST
1. Korean society is aging at an alarming speed. As defined by the UN, in an aging society, people over the age
of 65 account for 7 percent of the population and in an aged society, Koreans account for 14 percent.
Research forecasts that Korea, currently categorized as an aging society, will take 18 years to become an
aged society, whereas the change took 24 years for Japan and 72 years for the US, 154 years for France.
