Quality Of Life
SOUTH KOREA OVERVIEW
As of now South Korea's quality of life is above average in measures such as education, skills, and jobs. All though Korea is below average in wealth, environmental quality, and health status.
The population was 50.4 million in 2014, which increased by 102% since the '60s.
From the 1960s to around present day South Korea's economy has actually increased by 1,500%. Which scientist call the economic boom.
Although there were more than 6,400 suicides in 2000, and a 57% increase since 2001. South Korea also has the highest suicidal rate due to stress from schools.
Overall what we learned is that South Korea actually has one of the highest suicide rates. 70 people died each day in 2014, and it took a very long process for this number to go down. We also learned that in Korea there are extremely high standards and that the standards for both men and women physically are very similar. Right now in S.K is trying to look for ways to make citizens more healthy by doing daily checkups on the food in the markets, they are also putting protection on some streets where crime has increased rapidly for the citizens to feel safe. We picked S.K because we were curious about all the deaths.
In Korea the life expectancy is 81 years old. The age had increased over time. Since 1960 to 2008 it went up by 28 years which quickly closed the gap with the OECD average of other countries by one year. The obesity rate in Korea is at 10% which is 24% less than the rate in the U.S.
Due to the diet in South Korea being based around rice like other asian countries it helped with the smaller amount of obesity.
Recently an outbreak of the Middle East Syndrome corona virus (MERS) occurred. Having a total of 186 cases and a death roll of 36. MERS is a new disease that was found in 2012. It affects the respiratory system with symptoms of coughing, shortness of breath and fevers. It also kills 3-4 out of 10 patients. But as of now there is no cure or treatment.
Citizens are also all automatically
