Figure 0006: Distribution of respondents by family size and region.

Mentions: In terms of family size, distinct differences in number of family members were seen by region (Fig. 4.1). In the Arctic zone (Anabarsky, Zhigansky and Oleneksky regions), there were more families with 6 or more members. In Ust-Maysky region, located in the mixed zone with a mixed ethnic composition and both agricultural and manufacturing industries, 5-member families predominated. The Verkhnekolymsky region, also located in the mixed zone, had predominantly smaller families with 2 members. This is the result of a high level of poverty and broken families among the respondents.
