    First of all the numbers are inflated, in the soviet times they said there were 4 million people in Armenia, then they said but there were 1 million non Armenians in the country also, then after the earthquake and at the end of the soviet era they said Armenia was 96% ethnically Armenian. Then they said 600,000 people left the country and that was in 1998. THEN THEY SAID maybe over a million people left the country and that there was maybe only 1.5 million people in Armenia. Then they recently said well the population of Armenia is over 3 million in 2016. You tell me how people have over stated the facts. Yerevan the capital city has traffic up to it’s limits and it’s over crowded streets shows that not much people have left the capital.
