 National Bureau of Statistics: Chinas total population is still in a relatively stable growth period


Data show that at the end of 2018, Chinas total population was 139,538,000, a net increase of 5.3 million people over the end of 2017, and the annual birth population was 15.23 million, a decrease of 2 million people over 2017. The birth rate was 10.94 per thousand, down 1.49 thousand points from 2017.

Li Xiru, Director of the Department of Population and Employment Statistics of the National Bureau of Statistics, said that in 2018, Chinas birth population was 2 million fewer than that of the previous year, mainly affected by two factors: one is the continuous decrease of women of childbearing age; the other is the slight decrease in fertility level compared with the previous year. In 2016 and 2017, the comprehensive two-child policy was released centrally. In 2018, the effect of the policy was weakened, and the two-child fertility tended to be stable. Affected by this, the two-child fertility rate declined in 2018, making the overall fertility level slightly lower than the previous year. Nevertheless, because of the large scale of women of childbearing age in China, nearly 100 million women of childbearing age in the booming period of childbearing. According to the current number, structure and fertility level of women of childbearing age, the number of births per year in China will continue to decrease in the future, but it will still be significantly larger than the number of deaths, and the total population is still in a relatively stable growth period. Li Xiru also introduced that the comprehensive two-child policy has played a positive role in promoting fertility. The number of two-child births has largely alleviated the impact of the reduction in the number of births, which is conducive to improving the age structure of the population and promoting the balanced development of the population. In addition, Chinas working-age population has declined and the degree of aging has deepened, but the labor resources are still rich and have great potential.
