China’s one child family policy, which was first
announced in 1979, has remained in place despite the
extraordinary political and social changes that have
occurred over the past two decades. It emerged from
the belief that development would be compromised by
rapid population growth and that the sheer size of
China’s population together with its young age
structure presented a unique challenge.
