The National Statistical Service of Armenia has summed up the results
of the first nine months of 2012. Head of the Census and Demography
Department of the National Statistics Service Karine Kuyumjyan and
Head of the Ecology Statistics Department Nelly Baghdasryan presented
the details of the report.

According to official data, the population has decreased by more tan
130 thousand as compared to the same period in 2011. The number of
births in the republic has decreased with 3%, the number of death
has reduced with 0.8%. Armenia continues to remain an ageing country.

Instead, the diseases become younger, like anywhere in the world. The
cardiovascular diseases cause the most deaths in the country.

The number of marriages and divorces has decreased 6.6% and 3.1%
respectively. People tend to marry at an older age. What’s soothing
is that the average life expectancy in the country is not that low.

The number of crimes in the republic has decreased with about 1,000
this year. Most cases have been registered in Yerevan, Lori and Kotayk
marzes. The violations of tax and customs legislation have reduced.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
