China's birth rate at record low in 2021: official

   BEIJING, Jan 17, 2022 (BSS/AFP) - The birth rate in China plummeted to a

record low last year, official data showed Monday, as analysts warn that
faster-than-expected ageing could deepen economic growth concerns.

   The birth rate of the world's second-biggest economy slipped to 7.52
births per 1,000 people, according to National Bureau of Statistics data,
down from 8.52 in 2020 and the lowest rate since comparative records began in
1978.
