Dear Sir or Madam,
can you please provide me with data on domestic and foreign child adoptions per year since 1953 for editorial use? On your website, I only find a dataset back until 2000 ( http://kosis.kr/statHtml/statHtml.do?orgId=117&tblId=DT_11770N001&conn_path=I2&language=en )

Best regards and thank you in advance!

Dear Der Spiegel,

Thank you for visiting the KOSIS website.

The attached file shows statistics on child adoptions for the period between 1958 and 2019. The file is provided by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, which is responsible for producing statistics on child adoptions. I'm sorry, but data until 1990 are disseminated only on a 10-year basis. 

Thank you.
