"estimates from 12 to 22.5 million" is incorrect. There are around 14m Kurds are living in Turkey. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurdish_population Stardust al (talk) 09:29, 1 July 2016 (UTC)

In this article it says "there are 22,691,824 Kurds in Turkey, mostly born in Kurdish cities in the southeast of the country. Therefore, out of Turkey’s 74.7 million citizens, more than 30 percent are Kurds. These records only include people who have been registered at official government institutions." It does not mean that the people who born in these cities are Kurdish, vice versa it means they are Turkish because country is Turkey, and they are Turkish Citizens, not Kurdish citizens. It is not a reliable source.

Kurds in Armenia[edit]

At the time of survey conducted, only 2 162 /two thousand one hundred sixty two/ people have identified themselves as Kurds (քուրդ, on the fifth line), according to the given source, which is National Statistic Service's last population census: here

35 308 /thirty five thousand three hundred and eight/ people have identified themselves as Yazidis (եզդի)․ Yazidis are a distinct ethno-religious group, although 'genetically' belonging to wider Kurdish genome. They did not and do not identify themselves as Kurds.

So the number in the intro box is just an approximately summed up one and does not represent the facts. So please change. 46.241.210.207 (talk) 13:17, 26 August 2016 (UTC)
