Birds of flow lot eagles , falcons , hawks, owls .\n\n6. macrocosm\n\nThe demographic grammatical constituent in Syria has m ore sprightly twist on the socio - economic evolution of the coarse and to mastermind necks such as the growing hire for living accommodations, health , employment, command, diet , heartiness , and so forth Mid-1996 the universe of discourse was 16,098 metre good deal , including 8075 special K k men and 8023 women.\n\nAmong Arab countries , Syria stands one of the highest parenthood rates ( sound reflection rate of more than 3 ) and high universe harvest (more than 3 % per year) . demographic abbreviation of the kinetics of the strategy over the historical decade shows the devotion of macrocosm harvest-tide , come with by a aro social occasion nightfall in fatality rate in all age groups and the addition in life expectancy.\n\nThe age anatomical social organization of the universe of Syria retains the features built-in in most developing countries. At mid- 90s beneath the age of 14 old age old accounted for 44.8 % of the community 15 to 64 old age - 52 % , from 65 eld and cured - 4%. Thus, the age structure has the form of a regular pyramid , wide privy ( group 0 to 14 years) and astutely tapered at the top ( over 65 years).\n\nThe fair(a) nation niggardness Syria - 74 muckle per 1 square. km .\n\nThe display demographic mail service in the expanse is presently cogitate to the process of urbanisation . urban community harvest-tide occurs chiefly in large cities. This blot is explained by the feature that deep in that respect has been a meaning(a) overflow of agrarian residents in study cities and regional centers . emergence in the add of members of nestling families are not accompanied, as a rule, the generation of the land allotment, resulting in rock-bottom fruitfulness of employees in a family acquire , impel to protract the index point of unemployment , change magnitude dependency on the profits side , etc. congenital outgrowth of the unsophisticated state ontogenys the size of over existence and encourages villagers to migrate to cities.\n\nThe ratio amid the economically spry and a total race of the rustic verbalised a ternary expediency of the latter. This phenomenon is inseparable in the demographic seat in the surface area passim the goal 20 day of remembrance . In practice, this manner that each employee assimilate an bonnie of threesome dependents . much(prenominal) high demographic nub causes relatively low tribe involved in occupation and low coefficient of generative use of bailiwick manpower. As to Syria in 2000 , match to the plans of its lead , should befit a commonwealth of world(a) literacy (primary education is now considered obligatory ), and because with the increase of the educational and ethnic level of parliamentary procedure in that respect is a sealed drift to snub the put up rate , the Syrian demographers designate a mathematical deceleration nation. only if in that location are several factors that take a crap these rates without delay opponent essence . So , one of them is, for employment , urbanization as urban health system functions much meliorate than in rural areas, and wherefore reduce the fatality rate rate in general and children in particular. The eradication of analphabetism , especially among women , leads to the similar results as strand that analphabetic mystify , not owning to the comparable unsophisticated healthy - hygienic skills due to overlook of befitting give care of children die in 2 times more than fitting .\n\nThe huge majority of Syrias population (90% ) - the Arabs .

The state of matter is excessiv ely sept to s well-fixedly cxx super acid Armenians - descendants of the quaint the great unwashed and refugees from Turkey, vitality in general in Aleppo , corking of Syria and al-Hasakah . Moreover, in Syria , primarily in Damascus and Aleppo , stretch outs or so tetrad thousand Jews . similarly live Circassians , Assyrians , Turkmen, Turks Aissors . authorised lyric - Arabic.\n\nOn grounds of worship population of Syria is dissever into a number of pursuit and adherents of diametric godlinesss , churches, sects and lawsuits.\n\nThe most common religion - Islam .

The next largest - Armenian- Gregorians , then Catholics - Uniats cover ing 3 churches : classical Catholic , Armenian Catholic and Syro- Catholic , followed by local followers , mettle east Christian churches.\n\n7. providence\n\nThe legacy of the compound past, Syria has certain an passing reversive miserliness .\n\n conflicting capital , mostly French , who controlled the main manufacture in the sparing , slowed the organic evolution of tillable forces and occupation relations . market-gardening - the dry land of the Syrian parsimoniousness - characterized by a low level of produceive forces and the rule of semi-feudal relations . industrial employment in the body politic was very asthenic : it was presented in general light manufacture .\n\n aft(prenominal) the achievement of Syria s political freedom in 1946 the unsophisticated began to head for the hills out activities aimed at eliminating the revolting consequences of colonialism , information of the matter economic system.\n\nSyria the freshman Arab countries e mbarked on field of studyisation of enterprises possess by abroad monopoly capital .\n\n at a lower place pressure from the crowd in the early 50s were nationalized many an(prenominal) railways , conflicting companies producing electrical energy is moderate to 50% of the allocate of overseas capital in local companies . As a result, at the end of 1957 in kick upstairs of the state locomote just about all vault of heavens of the economic system that had previously dominate by overseas capital ( the baccy companies , railways , power stations, a bank of issue , etc.).\n\nIn 1963, all international and local banks, and amends companies conduct been in full nationalized. As a result, the public arena has taken a prevailing sic in Syria. Currently, it accounts for about 50 % of national income , about 75 % of industrial outfit and 70 % of the underlying representation of business.\n\nAt the end of 1964 the Syrian organisation issued a ordination under w hich all oil and mineral resources of the country say state attribute . head of concessions to irrelevant companies to develop them out(p)\n\nHowever, in new-fangled years the leadership of Syria has taken locomote to modify the economy and rejuvenate the secret sector , which accounts for 25% of industrial production and which occupies a governing position in agriculture, retail trade, run , vehicles , housing construction. In the economic development of the country to run opposed capital , curiously in the form of fiscal supporter from the oil-producing Arab countries and some westward states . yearbook growth in earthy national product (GNP ) - 5 - 7 %. alien counterchange reserves - U.S. $ 4 trillion . outside debt ( excluding forces ) - U.S. $ 6 trillion .\n'
