Financial Associated Press, January 17 - ning Jizhe, director of the National Bureau of statistics, pointed out at a press conference on January 17 that China's total population will continue to grow in 2021, with a net increase of 480000. There were 10.62 million births in the whole year. The decline in the birth population was affected by a variety of factors. The number of women of childbearing age decreased, the fertility level continued to decline, the concept of fertility changed, the age of marriage and childbearing was delayed, the epidemic situation delayed the arrangement of marriage and childbearing for young people, and so on. China's total population will remain above 1.4 billion for some time to come, and the effect of the three child policy will gradually appear. Among the birth population, the proportion of second children increased from about 30% in 2013 to about 43% in 2021.
