 Demographers forecast: China's population will start to decline

< p>

China's population will begin to decline, while India could become the world's most populous country. According to Reuters, this conclusion was reached by the UN. China's fertility rate of 1.16 in 2021 was below the OECD standard of 2.1. Birth rates in China will fall to an all-time low below 10 million this year, demographers say. By comparison, 10.6 million were born in China last year. According to a Chinese developer named Tang, young people are not even interested in marriage, let alone having children. The deterrent is the high cost of childcare and late marriages.
