Population

Around 95% of the population are mestizos (German: Mestizos) of Spanish-indigenous descent. The remainder is split between European and Asian immigrants (3%) and indigenous peoples (2%). Koreans and Germans or people of German origin make up the largest proportion of foreigners. With 17 residents per km² Paraguay is only sparsely populated (for comparison: Austria, 107 residents per km²). According to the natural conditions, the population is distributed extremely unevenly across the country. The main habitat is the eastern region, around two thirds of the population live in the greater Asunción area. Only 2% of the total population live in the sparsely populated western region, mainly indigenous peoples and Mennonites (mostly of German or Swiss origin who immigrated in three groups [1927, 1930 and 1947]). The largest Indian ethnic group in Paraguay are the Guaraní. Their language, which is also spoken by the majority of the non-indigenous population, has officially been the national language alongside Spanish since 1992. The Chaco Indians (especially the Aché under the Stroessner dictatorship) were threatened by persecution. – As a result of the rural exodus, the proportion of the urban population (2017) is 60%. Around 750,000 Paraguayans live abroad, more than half of them in neighboring Argentina.

Social: The social structure is determined by extreme inequalities; The rural population in particular is disadvantaged; a third of the population, especially in rural areas, lives below the national poverty line. Medical care is mainly concentrated in the Asunción area.

Religion

The constitution (Article 24) guarantees religious freedom and expressly excludes an “official religion of the state”. When the 1992 constitution came into force, the former status of the Catholic Church as a state church was revoked. Religious communities are required to register with the Ministry of Education and Culture.

According to the latest available estimates, about 96% of the population are Christians: 89.6% belong to the Catholic Church (an archdiocese [Asunción] with eleven suffragan bishops and two apostolic vicariates and a military ordinariate), about 6.2% belong to various (post-) Reformation denominations (Evangelicals and other Protestant Christians, especially Baptists and Methodists). The Anglicans of the Diocese of Paraguay (seat: Asunción) are part of the »Anglican Church of the southern tip of America«. Other religious groups with references to Christianity are z. B. Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons together with about 2% of the population.

The Baha’is, Muslims and Jews make up very small non-Christian religious minorities. The history of the Jewish community (three synagogues in Asunción) goes back to Jews who immigrated from France and Switzerland at the end of the 19th century. The Muslim community maintains an Islamic Center in Asunción. – There are few followers of traditional religions among the Indian population. More than 1% of the population cannot be assigned to any religion.

Education

The level of education is comparatively low. Knowledge of Spanish is an essential prerequisite for a qualified education. Since around a third of the population only speaks Guaraní, they are denied access to promising professions.

There is general compulsory schooling between the ages of 6 and 15 with free tuition. Compulsory education comprises the six-year primary level and a three-year cycle at lower secondary level I. After three more years at upper secondary level, the university entrance qualification (Bachillerato) can be acquired in the branches of humanities, economics or technology. A preparatory year and an entrance examination are often required for admission to the university. In the tertiary sector, there are public and private institutions for teacher training as well as for vocational training courses on a non-university level. Next to the National University of Paraguay (founded in 1889) and the Catholic University (founded in 1965), both in Asunción, there are several privately owned higher education institutions.

Media

In Paraguay, the 1992 constitution guarantees freedom of the press, but it is restricted by government pressure, threats and violence against journalists. The most important source of information outside of the cities is the radio. Check sunglasseswill to see South America Economy.
