Navigation Around the Model

Because the model is quite large and we do not always have access to large format screens a series of buttons have been installed at the top of the model.

There is one button for each of the four groups of variables . that is

  • 1. Population
  • 2. Labour force
  • 3. Productivity and GDP
  • 4. Household Income and Expenditure

Clicking on these buttons zooms into the selected area - maximised to your screen size.

At the top left of each ‘Zoom’ area is a button which takes you back to displaying the full model.


By 2045

The total population of China is projected to decline to 1.378 billion persons - down from 1.411 in 2020 (Census). This assumes the average birth rate per thousand women aged 15 to 49 increases from 44 (in 2019) to 50 in 2024 and then declines to 46 by 2045, reflecting trends in improved education and affluence.

Annual births in 2024 are expected to be 15.7 million and are projected to decline to 12.4 million by 2035 and 11.541 million by 2045.
