Culture of Uzbekistan
By nature Uzbeks prefer a sedentary life and that is why migration and immigration scarcely have any influence on population growth patterns. In general, the level of the population's natural growth is very high. In the country the number of marriages is significantly high and the percentage of divorce cases is one of the lowest in the world. According to Uzbek tradition, the family is regarded as something quite sacred.
The usual Uzbek family, particularly in villages, is rather big. On the average, the Uzbek family has 5-6 children.
