I am always confused about comparison. For example, when comparing two countries based on the family size( the number of children) which one is acceptable?

Korea's family size is bigger than Turkey's.
Family size in korea is bigger than that in Turkey.
Family size in Korea is bigger than the family size in Turkey.

The number of children in Korea is bigger than that in Turkey.
The number of children in Korea is bigger than Turkey.


If nothing is correct, how do you compare it?

    I'm afraid none of those sentences are natural.

    Korean families are (usually?) bigger than Turkish ones.
    There are more children in Korea than in Turkey.
    (Unlikely, considering Turkey's population is one and a half times South Korea's, and more than both Koreas, according to the net.)

    The number of children in Korea is bigger than that in Turkey.
    You could use "number of children" but you'd need "is more than in"
