China's birth rate rises but falls short of government estimates

China's birth rate rises but falls short of government estimates
- Births increased by 7.9% in 2016 to 17.86 million, according to China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission. About 45% of babies were born to families that already had one child. Demographers had described the decision taken in 2015 to allow all families to have two children as “too little, too late” in the fight against a rapidly ageing population.China’s one-child policy, which began in the 1970s, was responsible for severe rights abuses, including forced abortions and sterilisation, heavy fines for families who violated regulations and compulsory birth control methods such as intrauterine devices.
