Journal of agricultural medicine and community health, volume 3, issue 1, 1978, Pages 10~17
There are numerous reports on menarche age in korea and other countries but only few reports are available on menopausal age. This is a result of surveys on 509 women for menarche and 341 women for manopause among the rural areas of Choongnam and Kyungbuk province. For those born between 1894 and 1929. aver age ageof menarche was 16.63 years. The earliest was 13 years and latest was 22 years old. Majority (78.8%) had their menarohe at the age of between 15 and 18. It was noted that there was gradual advancement of menarche age among those born in later years than earlier. More menarche started in the months of October and April and fewest was in the month of June. Spring was the time when the largest number of women had menarche and this was followed by Autumn. Winter, and Summer. The most common menstrual cycle was 39 days type which is followed by 28 days and 26 days. The average monpausal age among rural korean women was 46.97 years. The number of years between menarche and menopause appears to be dependent upon individual physical and mental condition. socioeconomical circumstances. and also hereditary as well as ethnic differences. 87.1 % of rural korean women had menstrual ages of between 20 to 35 years according to this statistics and the average was 29.67 years.

Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm) infestation in present day Korea has become one of nationwide problems. But, the incidence of pinworm infestation having been reported by many workers was almostly the data for specific groups. The incidence of pinworm infestation for 208 families of 760(male; 30, female;420) middle class inhabitant of Seoul, 238 subrural inhabitants in Gyeonggi Province and 150(male;77, female;73) rural primary students in three different districts were examined by modified Gralam's scotch-tape swab method. The results are summarized as follows; 1. The incidence of nationwide infestation a. The nationwide incidence of pinworm infestation of the 1,148 specimens examined was 28.7% (male; 27.5%, female; 29.6%). b. The highest incidence was found among 5-14 years of age. c. In comparison of the incidence by the area, the highest incidence was found among subrural area, next among rural area and the lowest among urban area. 2, Urban area a. The incidence of the 760 inhabitants examined was 23.2% (male; 24.1%, female; 22. 3%). b. The incidence of the parents group was 12.2% and children group was 30. 30.3%. c. In the parents who hold one or more pinworm poitive cases among children, the incidence of father group was 13.2% and mother group was 29.7%.3. Subrural area a. The incidence of the 238 inhabitants examined was 42.9% (male, 40.8%, female; 44.4%). b. The cumulative positive rate of anal swabs showed increasing tendency. c. Worm collection rates after chemotherapy of 98 inhabitants were 54, 0%. d. In scotch tape anal swab only one times, diagnostic value was 74.0%. e. Mother group infested with pinworm seemed to play an important role for the high incidence in individual family. f. In comparison of the incidence by the examination method, the highest incidence was found among scotch tape method. 4. Rural area The incidence of the 150 primary students examined was 34. 5% (male ; 24. 7%, female; 43.8%).

For the purpose of prevention and improvement of Korean rural women's anemia, the author has performed a study on the factors related to host and environment in order to acquire the basic data for public health activities from July, 1978 to September, 1978. The summarized results were as follows. 1. The prevalence of anemia was found in 38.6%, and the mean hemoglobin, hematocrit and specific gravity level were
each other. 2. It was recognized and had statistically significance that the occurance of anemia was markedly influenced by 3 items; family size, yearly income per household and intensity of labor.

Clonorchiasis sinensis is the most important endemic disease in In Korea, and this disease has been known to be one of public health concern in mary areas of southern part of Korea. This survey was undertaken to evaluate the status of clonorchiasis in Eui-Seong Gun, Kyungpook Province from March 1974 to August 1974. A total number of 3,771(male 2,037. female 1,734) consisting of 2,948 primary school children, 774 middle school students, 49 high school students were examined by the intradermal test with clonorchis antigen. In order to detect clonorchis egg, the stool examinations were undertaken on the residents in Bong Yang Myun. And, the intensity of the clonorchis infection was estimated by the Stoll's egg count. The following results were obtained in this survey; 1. As a whole, 6.0 per cent of the examiners showed positive reaction by the intradermal test (male 8.0%, female 3.6%). 2. Among 249 residents in Bong Yang Myun, the prevalence rate of clonorchis eggs was shown as 45.8 per cent. 3. The mean E. P. G. in Bong Yang Myun 114 inhabitants was 2,197. 4. The degree of the intensity of clonorchis infection by E. P. G. counts was distributed to the light (50.9%) medium (43.9%) and heavy infection groups(5.3%).
