From the Korea Times, an article about 2007 statistics from the National Statistic Office in South Korea.
The number of orphans adopted last year declined from a year ago,
falling for the sixth consecutive year. But a greater number of orphans
found a new family here than overseas for the first time.
Local households adopted 1,388 orphans, accounting for
52.3 percent of the total, while 1,264 orphans, or 47.7 percent, found
a new home in foreign countries.
Interesting to me was that the number of child abuse cases more than doubled. Read the whole article here.
