Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- Population growth continues to decline in China, the world's most populous country with a population of 1 billion 410 million people.
2020 was the year with the lowest birth rate since the founding of the People's Republic of China (1949).
Although the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic had an effect on births, the birth rate recorded in the previous year was also recorded at low levels.
China's population increased by 5.38% to 1.41 billion, according to census results published on May 11, 2010-2020.
In the previous decade, population growth was 5.84%.
Problems such as the economic situation, career, and cost of living are said to have contributed to the decrease in the number of newborn children.
