South Sudanese

South Sudanese, a native or inhabitant of South Sudan. South Sudanese people lived at an autonomous region in South Sudan. South Sudanese is composed of more than 200 ethnic groups and is, along with the adjacent Nuba Hills, one of the most linguistically diverse regions of Africa. However, many of the South Sudanese languages are quite small, with only a few thousand speakers. Juba is its capital city of South Sudan.

In 2009 Sudan started a new Southern Sudanese census ahead of the South Sudanese independence referendum, 2011, which is said to also include the Southern Sudanese diaspora. However this initiative was criticised as it was to leave out countries with a high share of the Southern Sudanese diaspora, and rather count countries where the diaspora share was low. South Sudanese officially consists of the ten states which formerly composed the three historic Provinces of Bahr el Ghazal, Equatoria, and Upper Nile.
