Is China heading for a demographic crisis? | TV Shows

The words: Inside story

The population in the world’s most populous country has fallen for the first time in 61 years.

China’s population has fallen for the first time in more than six decades. The birth rate falls to 6.77 births per 1,000 people by 2022.

Complicating matters is that there are more deaths than births.

What’s behind this downturn?

And what will it do to reverse the trend?
