This report provides SaeMaul Undong databases and empirical data for the development of the SaeMaul Undong textbook project of KSP. The databases cover Goon (County) unit SaeMaul Undong, Presidential Grants and Maul (Township) unit SaeMaul Undong records and will activate SaeMaulUndong research. However with limited time, budget and human resources, the priority lies on establishing the foundation of the databases for future long
Goon unit statistical yearbooks are based on the data in The National Library of Korea. The Presidential Grant data are based on the Eup and Myon unit Maul information published in 『SaeMaul Undong-Sijakeseo Oneulkkaji 'from the beginning to today'』by the Ministry of Home Affairs. The Maul unit SaeMaul Undong records are based on the 11
Maul data in the SaeMaul Undong Central Institute. The collected data are analyzed by
each case and provided in Excel files for easy access and statistical analyses. The ultimate goal is for users to use
a web based search program.
Until now, most researches
have been based on macro statistical data and government
reports due to the lack of empirical data on Maul, Goon and Si unit and Presidential Grants. This project will provide detailed empirical data for the development of SaeMaul Undong textbooks. Furthermore it will excelerate more active researches on SaeMaul Undong by establishing foundational data which haven’t been generally available for researchers.
