Quelques données intéressantes sur l’Iran
Census : Iran young, urbanised and educated | Egypt Independent
Iran is a very urbanized society with a largely educated, young Muslim population that ranks as the Middle East’s second-biggest, its latest census figures, published on Sunday, show.
The snapshot, issued on the website of the presidency’s planning and strategic supervision department (www.amar.org.ir), also corrected some misconceptions about the country, notably by reporting fewer than expected Jews and Internet users.
Voici quelques chiffres :
Iranians accounted for 73.5 million of the total, with 1.5 million Afghans making up the biggest minority living in the country. Other minorities included Iraqis (51,500), Pakistanis (17,700) and Turks (1,600).
An overwhelming proportion of the population — 71 percent — lived in urban areas, and Tehran and its satellite towns are home to 12.2 million inhabitants.
The literacy rate for those aged between 10 and 49 was 93 percent.
Most of the population is young, with 55 percent aged under 30.
Le nombre de juifs vivant dans le pays est revu à la baisse par rapport à la plupart des estimations données jusque-là :
There are 8,756 Jews in the country, according to the census. That was fewer than the 20,000 figure previously estimated.
Enfin, le nombre de personnes connectées à Internet est de 11,2 millions, alors que les chiffres officiels étaient de 36 millions.
