Kamchatka Krai (Russian: Камча́тский край; IPA: [kɐmˈtɕatskʲɪj kraj]) is a federal subject of Russia (a krai). It is part of the Far Eastern Federal District. It was formed on July 1, 2007, as a result of the merger of Kamchatka Oblast and Koryak Autonomous Okrug, based on the voting on a referendum on the issue on October 23, 2005.

The krai's administrative center is the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The okrug retains the status of a special administrative division of the krai, under the name of Koryak Okrug. Population: 322,079 (2010 Census).[8]

Administrative divisions[edit]

Economy[edit]

The main industries in Kamchatka include fishing and forestry. Coal and other raw materials are extracted. Due to its geographical location near major shipping routes, it is a center for shipbuilding, ship repair, and related services.[12] There are also oil and mineral resources which are yet to be fully developed.[13]

Demographics[edit]

Population: 322,079 (2010 Census);[8] 358,801 (2002 Census);[14] 466,096 (1989 Census).[15]

  • Births (2008 Jan-Nov): 3,673 (11.55 per 1000)
  • Deaths (2008 Jan-Nov): 3,554 (11.17 per 1000)[16]

Vital statistics for 2007[edit]

Source:[17]

  • Births: 3,931 (11.32 per 1000, 11.36 for urban areas & 11.20 for rural areas).

After nearly two decades, Kamchatka recorded a net natural population growth instead of decline in 2007. However in first half of 2008, the trend was reversed and population decline was observed again, partly due to an increased mortality rate among the rural population.
