    琉球人口情况(1955年)

    The Population of the Ryukyu Islands

    作者: Irene B. Taeuber

    原载 Population Index, Vol. 21, No. 4 (Oct., 1955), pp. 233-263

    The Ryukyus are small but densely settled islands. In 1950 there were
    2,194 persons per square mile of potentially arable land, 4,013
    persons per square mile of cultivated land.

    It is realized within the United States Civil Administration of the Ryukyus
    and the Government of the Ryukyu Islands, as it was within the Government
    of Japan, that the population problem is acute. There is some leeway
    in an increase of the cultivated acreage and an increase in yields
    per unit cultivated, but it is slight in relation to the size of the annual
    increment to the population. Industrialization on an adequate scale is
    neither feasible nor economic; major emigration outlets are not available;
    fertility is high without substantial evidence of decline, while an
    already lowered mortality is being reduced further; natural increase is
    high and may be considerably higher in the future.

    This is a familiar
    story in the Far East, and the number of people involved is less than a
    million. Therefore substantative analysis might seem trivial, were it
    not for two factors. First, this is another island microcosm for which
    the interrelations of population, resources, economy, and culture can be
    studied on a reasonably detailed quantitative basis. Second, despite remoteness
    of area, divergence in language, and strangeness in culture,
    the Ryukyu population is now a responsibility of the United States under
    the terms of the Japanese Surrender of 1945 and the Peace Treaty of
    1952. The last major battle of the Pacific War was fought in southern
    Okinawa, and there today the dominant economic fact for the indigenous
    people is the United States Air Base...
