China's Population to Top 1.3 Billion - 2005-01-03


China's National Statistics Bureau says the population of China is expected to officially reach 1.3 billion this week.

The official Xinhua news agency said today (Monday) that the figure has been postponed for four years by effective birth control policies in China.

The news agency said that although the population growth rate has been reduced, the actual increase is still huge. Also, China is expecting a peak in the number of elderly and a growing imbalance in sex ratios among newborn babies.
