The latest statistical data from China indicate a historic decline in population and birth rates.

China’s population shrank last year for the first time in six decades. At the end of 2022, the most populous country in the world had 1.411 billion inhabitants, around 850,000 fewer than a year earlier, the statistics office in Beijing said on Tuesday.

China’s population has fallen for the first time since 1961 – a historic reversal that is likely to mark the beginning of a prolonged period of population decline.
