Abstract

Korea’s demographic transition took place simultaneously with the country’s rapid economic growth and social change between 1960 and 2000. During this period the annual GDP per capita grew from $79 (US dollars, current price) in 1960 to $10,841 in 2000. Women’s educational level improved greatly, reaching nearly universal senior high school education. Mortality declined rapidly as well. In 1960, one out of 12 newborn babies were dying within a year but in 2000, the rate has decline to one out of 167 newborns (Table 1).
