We are too stupid to be convinced by census figures that do not add up. The night p hotographs are telling. You can see clearly the conurbations in the south, including the Paphos one which should, if the census were right, be much smaller than the Kyrenia one. It is not.

Then there is the map of built up areas. The southern urban sprawl is obviously larger than the the sprawl in the north. The difference between Morphou and Paralimni is interesting. Morphou is supposedly a bustling investment hub. Pre 1974 it was incomparably larger than Paralimni which was a tiny farming village depending in part on bird trapping for its livelihood. In the map Paralimni today is several times larger than Morphou and it is not regarded as an "investment hub".

So the puzzle still remains of where half a million, or more "optimistically" one million, people fit.

Tim above mentions the northern urban sprawl that turned Kioneli into part of Nicosia. Well today Lakatamia is part of Nicosia. The capital extended southward to house several hundred thousand people and that extension is far greater than the one in the north which by reference to the million should be much larger. Something is amiss.

One possibility is that settlers live many more per dwelling and use much less electricity per capita than mainland Turks. Which would raise the question why they come to Cyprus if that means lowering their basic standards from what they had in Turkey.

DT has put it frankly and succinctly.

Bullshit figures is one possibility, likely the most probable one.

There are others. One is that even Turks from deprived areas of Turkey no longer find the prospect of being moved to Cyprus attractive, not when there are fast growth areas in Turkey where they can make a risk free living and shun Cyprus. It is not a Cypriot phenomenon, that night time map of the world pretty much shows where people on the planet congregate- where the money is.

The other inference is that TCs have a knack of undermining themselves, even when they are in the tight embrace of their motherland. The tech photos tell a lot about which is the flourishing and which the waning part of the island 40 years after the "liberation" of the TCs.

And I’m calling bullshit on this entire thread… like it makes any difference if there are 250k, 320k, or some other similar figure! :roll:
