Youth Population Dwindles Below 10 Million

The country's youth population has dropped below 10 million for the first time and is projected to keep dwindling until 2060, when it will hover at about 5 million.

The decline will cause labor shortages and have a negative effect on economic growth.

According to a census published by Statistics Korea on Tuesday, the total population is 51.45 million this year, but only 9.25 million are between nine and 24.

This is the first time since the first census in 1970 that the youth population has plunged below 10 million.
