The total population in the sample villages was 1317 persons; the male population was 625, accounting for 47 per cent of the total and the female population was 692, accounting for 53 per cent of the total (Table 8.2). There were more females than males in the population sample, with an overall sex ratio of 90.3. (that is, 90.3 males for every 100 females). According to the national population census, the sex ratio of the Korean population in 1990 was 100.7, and the deviation of the sex ratio in the sample villages becomes much more severe in certain age groups. In fact, the sex ratio in almost all age groups in the sample does not concord with the national figure, except for the 25–29 and 40–44 age groups. The deviation of sex ratio tends to decrease among the older age groups – that is, older than 50.
