India No. 1: Chinese population shrank last year for the first time in six decades

Beijing: In terms of population, India has surpassed China. According to current estimates, India will surpass China as the world’s most populous country by this year. According to figures released earlier this month, India had 50 lakh more people than China by December.

According to the National Bureau of Statistics, China’s population fell for the first time in six decades last year. This is the lowest level since 1961. Compared to 2021, the population will decrease by 850,000. According to the report, China’s population was 1.41 billion at the end of last year.

China’s birth rate has also reached its lowest point since 1950. In 2022, about 9.56 million babies will be born in China. It was 10.62 million a year ago. It is also noteworthy that this decrease comes amid the government’s efforts to create more children in families.

At the same time, figures show that China’s death rate has increased slightly. In the country last year, 10.41 million people died. This represents an increase of 10 million from the previous year.

Since last month, China has withdrawn from the country’s COVID restrictions. As a result, the number of COVID-related deaths in the country has increased. As the COVID outbreak continues unabated, it is expected that more COVID deaths will occur in the country this year.

It has been observed that China’s population is rapidly declining. This situation has had an impact on China’s economic system as well. China’s attempt to become the world’s largest economy has been hampered by a slowdown in demand for housing and other goods.

In 2019, the United Nations predicted that China’s population would increase significantly by 2031 and then decline. The UN has also predicted that it will peak in early 2022. The UN has warned that housing demand will fall and the pension system will collapse due to a lack of funds.
