The Chinese government quickly censored an article revealing a significant drop in the country’s birth rate, indicating a more severe population crisis than previously acknowledged.

Factors contributing to the decline include a decrease in first-time marriages, reluctance to marry and have children due to economic challenges, and a shift in societal attitudes.

Some attribute the low fertility rates to political defiance against traditional expectations and the government’s policies.

“They’re not buying homes, making step-by-step career moves or growing the population as their parents or the government would like,” an anonymous Chinese researcher stated.

“The model of accumulating wealth and then having kids is broken. Young people are starting to make their own choices,” the researcher said.

The declining birth rate poses a major obstacle to China’s economic growth and is likely to lead to labor shortages in the future, impacting global manufacturing.

“It is a vicious cycle. An economic slowdown should mean young couples delay having children. The resulting decline in fertility rates eventually pushes the economy’s productivity rates lower,” the Financial Times wrote.
