Chinese birth rate falls to the lowest in 70 years

China’s birth rate has fallen to its lowest since 1949. This comes despite the easing of the one-child policy. The birth rate was 10.48 per thousand in 2019, translating into the number of babies born in 2019 dropping by 580,000 to 14.65 million. However, despite the birth rate falling, a lower death rate meant China’s population hit 1.4 billion in 2019 (up from 1.39 billion).
