WHO IS IN THE NETWORK - ACTIVITIES - NEWS - BACK
The 1998 Cambodian Population Census identified 17 different indigenous groups. Based on spoken language, the census estimated the indigenous population at about 101,000 people or 0.9 percent of the then total population of 11.4 million. Empirical research, however, suggests that the figure is most likely underestimated and could be as high as 160,000 people or 1.5 percent of Cambodia’s population.
