Kosovo with a difference
For centuries, the ethnic Albanian villagers have lived in Kosovo within extensive families among members consisting of 70 to 100 which were ruled by a chosen patriarch. Up to this date, the Kosovar society is still built on family units in the majority of the rural areas, even though the family structure has progressively eroded since the end of World War II. Exact statistics regarding the population size of Kosovo does not currently exist. However, it is estimated to range around 1.8-2.2 million. At present, Kosovo has the youngest population in Europe with the population density being close to 200 per square kilometer which is considered one of the highest in Europe as well.
