Statistics from South Korea [View all]

I thought I'd just share this if anyone was interested. It is a paragraph from a paper I'm writing that compiles some statistics on multicultural families in South Korea:

Immigration to South Korea by foreigners has increased from 110,000 in 1995 when the immigration rules were relaxed, to 1.2 million in 2010 (Kim, 2010). By 2020, estimates are that 2.53 million immigrants will live in South Korea and that number will increase to over 4 million by 2050 (Kim, 2010). Multinational marriages, a marriage between a Korean and a foreigner of non-Korean descent, have increased from 24,776 in 2005 to 34,235 in 2010 (Statistics Korea, 2010). The number of children born into multicultural families, a family consisting of a parent from one or more cultures, has also grown from 44,258 in 2007 to 151,154 in 2010 (Korean Ministry of Public Administration and Security, 2013).
