The National Bureau of Statistics said on Tuesday that the country’s population stood at 1.411.75 billion with 9.56 million births against 1.041 million deaths. Of these, 72.206 crore are men and 68.969 crore are women. China has long been the world’s most populous country, but India is likely to overtake it soon. For the first time since 1961, the rate of population of people in China has become negative. So this historic decline has come.
China’s population will reach its peak in 2022
At the end of 2022, China’s population stood at 1.41175 billion, up from 1.41260 billion a year ago. This announcement of China is being considered as the beginning of the era when the population of China will decrease. This has happened when China gives money to produce more children. Kai Fang, the top official of China’s parliament, said that China’s population will reach its peak in the year 2022. It happened much earlier than expected. My country is now about to enter a period of negative population growth.
China is now in great tension due to its dwindling population and it is fearing that the title of the world’s factory may be snatched from it. In fact, China has remained the factory of the world for the last several years on the basis of cheap labour, but the low population has become a crisis for it. Not only this, its working population is getting old. In view of this, China is now running various incentive schemes so that people spend less on raising children and they produce more and more children.
One million less born children in China
The rate of growth of China’s population was 6.77 per 1000 people this year, which was 7.52 last year. This year, one million fewer children were born in China than last year. While China is troubled by the declining population, the population of India is increasing continuously and the number of young population here is quite high. With this, India can become a cheap labor market for the world.
