MyanmarTravel.Info  - amigo tour, myanmar travel, myanmar travels, myanmar tour, myanmar tours, myanmar tour operator, myanmar tour guidePopulation & People Population

Population

Since the government does not control the entire country, a complete census has not been possible since the British days. As of 1988 the population is estimated to be about 48.8 million according to international sources (but 46.4 million according to the Myanmar government), with an annual growth rate of around 2.1%. Approximately 74% live in rural areas.

The largest cities, in declining order, are Yangon, Mandalay, Pathein, Mawlamyaing, Taunggyi and Sittwe. Population statistics for each of these cities have not been made public sine 1973, and local estimates vary wildly depending on whom you ask; Yangon appears to have 3 or 4 million people, Mandalay around 800,000 the remainder 300,000 or fewer.

People

Myanmar's population can be divided into four main ethnological groups - Tibeto-Burman, Mon-Khmer, Austro-Thai and Karennic. Tibeto-Burman speakers encompass 78% of the population and include the majority Bamar plus over 30 smaller tribal groups including the Rakhaing, Chin, Kachin, Lisu, Lahu and Akha. Most of the Mon-Khmer are Mon living in the Gulf of Martaban area, along with smaller groups in the north such as the Intha, Wa and Palaung. Most of the Austro-Thais are Shan living in the north; 'Shan' in fact comes from the same Austro-Thais are Shan living in the north; 'Shan' in fact comes from the same Austro-Thai root as 'Siam', both meaning 'free'. The Karennic groups include the numerous Kayin (Karen) and Kayah (known to the British as the Karenni) tribes living along or near the central Thai-Burmese border. There are also around 6000 Hmong-Mien peoples scattered around the north and north-east.

Although ethnologists have identified 111 different ethnolinguistic groups in Myanmar, the government recongnises 67, officially clustered by language origin into just eight 'national races': Bamar, Shan, Mon, Kayin, Chin, Kachin and Rakhaing.
The exact percentage belonging to each group is a hotly debated topic both inside and outside Myanmar. In the absence of nay scientifically conducted census, no one can claim to know the true ethnic breakdown. Best estimate run as follows: Bamar 65% Shan 10%, Kayin 7%, Rakhaing 4% and Chin, Kachin and Mon around 2.3% each. Chinese, Indian, Assamese and other minorities comprise less than 1% each.
