Baby Boom May Happen Soon In China

China one child policy

China rolls back its one child policy to allow all couples two children. China introduced the one child in 1978. It started implementing the policy on September 18th, 1980. China ranks number 1 in the list of countries by population. The nations's population is equivalent to 19.24% of the total world population. 137,63,27,268 is China's current population.

How Did It Work

At first the rule was one child for all couples. Later on, regulations began to vary and loosen in different parts of the country. Recently urban couples have generally been allowed only one child, but two if both parents were only children themselves.

Why Was The Policy Enacted

China's family planning law, which limited many couples to having one child only, was formally implemented in the late 1970's as a means of controlling its population, the world's largest. Avoiding overpopulation has helped speed China's rapid economic development since then.
