Visits by Koreans to medical institutions have almost doubled in nine years, a senior research fellow from the Daishin Economic Research Institute reports. In 1990, per capita visits were 3.2 times, but this had risen to 5.9 times by 1999. Over the same period, the population has aged, with 9.3% of the population over 60 in 1999, compared to 7.6% in 1990.
