Population to Peak to 1.45 Billion by 2030

China's population is expected to peak to 1.45 billion in 2030, then drop to 1.4 billion by 2050 and 1.1 billion by the end of this century, Wang Peian, deputy head of the National Health and Family Planning Commission, said recently. Dismissing concerns over demographic crisis leading to increasing old age population, he said that China does not lack in population, not in a few decades, not in 100 years. About the concerns over a declining labor force, Wang claimed that China's working age population between 15 and 64 years is still a little over one billion and accounts for 73 percent of the total population.The working age population will gradually drop to 985 million in 2020 and to around 800 million by 2050.Wang noted that following the second-child policy, a total of 18.46 million births were recorded across China in 2016.The number is the largest since 2000, two million more than past averages.
