China’s Birth Rate At Record Low In 2021 – Official

The birth rate in China plummeted to a record low last year, official data showed Monday, as analysts warn that faster-than-expected ageing could deepen economic growth concerns, IgbereTV reports.

Beijing has been grappling with a looming demographic crisis amid a rapidly ageing workforce, slowing economy and the country’s weakest population growth in decades.

The birth rate of the world’s second-biggest economy slipped to 7.52 births per 1,000 people, according to National Bureau of Statistics data, down from 8.52 in 2020.

This marks the lowest figure logged in the country’s annual Statistical Yearbook data since 1978 and is also the lowest since Communist China was founded in 1949
