It was believed that the policy of one child per family has led to a reduction in China the number of born girls.
The researchers compared the number of births in 1990, with the number of 20-year-olds in 2010. The researchers found that adults was four million more than children. This difference is due to the fact that the parents later apply for the registration of the birth of a second child or not register it at all, for fear of fines or loss of work. The official demographic figures may not reflect the 25 million women.
Before this it was considered that the policy of one child per family has led to a reduction in China the number of born girls. According to experts, by 2020 the country will have 30 million more men than women. This deficit is termed “missing women” (missing women), which offered the Indian economist and Nobel laureate Amartya sen.
The principle of “one family — one child” started to operate in 1980. The citizens of China were allowed to have no more than one child in the family, except in cases of multiple pregnancy. However, the reduction of the workforce led to the fact that the Chinese authorities have allowed families to have two children.
