The natural increase in China's population in 2014 increased by 0,29%
According to data for 2014, excluding the special administrative regions of Hong Kong, Macau and the island of Taiwan, the number of residents of China amounted to 1 thousand people, according to the State Statistical Office of the PRC.
The natural increase in the population of China last year increased by 0,29% and amounted to 7,1 million people. At the same time, the population of China continues to grow steadily, and if at the moment the number of residents over the age of 60 is 15,5% or 212,42 million people, then, according to the forecasts of the State Committee for Health and Planned Birth, by 2030, their number will reach 356 million people.
Some experts see the reason for this state of affairs in the "one family - one child" policy. In 2013, the Chinese authorities allowed spouses to have a second child if one of them was once the only child in their family.
It was expected that such a measure would lead to a surge in the birth rate. However, statistics 2014 year says the opposite: less than one million Chinese pairs have applied for the birth of a second child. This result was half the expected result.
