Ningjizhao pointed out that the number of births in China is still considerable, and there is no need to over-interpret it.
Chinas demographic data for 2018, which has attracted much attention from the Beijing News Express, were released today (January 21). Ning Jixie, director of the National Bureau of Statistics, introduced at a press conference of the State Councils press office that Chinas birth population was 15.23 million in 2018. He pointed out that the number of births in China is still considerable and there is no need to over-interpret the demographic dividend.
According to the data of the National Bureau of Statistics, Chinas birth population was 15.23 million in 2018, with a birth rate of 10.94. Reporters noted that compared with 17.23 million births in 2017, the number of newborns in China decreased by 2 million in 2018.
Ningjizhao said that in 2018, Chinas birth population was considerable, with a considerable proportion of births. As for the decline of population growth rate and birth rate, it shows that the population data should not only look at one year, but also look at the population data in recent years. It can be found that the population structure changes with the development of economy and society, which is natural and does not need to be over-interpreted.
He pointed out that the demographic dividend still exists. Chinas labor resources reach 900 million people, and the scale is huge. With the improvement of the quality of our labor force, the talent dividend will be more and more brought into play. With the demographic dividend that still exists, the factors that support the medium and long-term improvement of Chinas economy will remain unchanged.
