Birthrate in Korea has been lower than replacement level for a long period of time since 1983. Regional gap in birthrate is also gaping and has been so without much fluctuation for long. Although a number of research works were conducted to figure out causes and fabrics of the low birthrate issue and policy studies to up birthrate have exuberantly been done, there is not much sign of improvement of it. Therefore, it seems reasonable to infer that a new approach on this matter is required.
By far, most researches into birthrate set their unit for analysis on individuals and focused on empirical assay based on other research materials, those that analyzed structural context of regions are hard to find. Additionally, as to policy directions, both central and local governments that are in charge of childbirth support apply a nationwide uniform standard without considering regional differences. Proper policy measures regarding these differences, unsurprisingly, are not materialized yet, despite the stark regional gap in birthrate.
