book chapter description
In this chapter, we focus on three aspects of China's demographic change during its economic reforms of the past quarter century. First, we review and summarize major demographic changes in China during this time period. Second, we complemented other favorable development forces during the past quarter century. We also consider how future economic prospects are likely to be influences by demographic factors. Third, we identify and highlight a number of the social consequences of China's recent demographic changes.
