Hi Peter !
If you have any contacts that can provide Hungarian statistics,
I'm sure people would be interested. The statistics are those
provided in a 1990 book issued by the World Scout Organization.
I neglected to include an appendix in the original post.
Here it is. (Events in Eastern Europe and Russia make the information

Afghanistan 1932-47/1964-78 1978
Albania 1922 1937

>> George - Belize update
Your personal anecdote was interesting. What's sailing like
down that way ? Here is the correction from my weekend research.
Country 1 2 3 4 5
(see original post for data sources.)
Members Members Pop. Sq.Km. Pop. Density
K per Sq.Km.
Belize 972 972 171 22,965 7
Monaco (1.49 Sq. Km.) 76 90 27 1 18,121
Looks like the numbers in the publication were rounded up or down.
The Belize entry was as it appeared in the source document.
Any other contributions welcomed ! If you have information in the
categories shown for countries that have re-instated scouting, or
you question any of the data shown, your comments are welcome !
Yours in Scouting
