Aging Workers, Slowing Productivity: China’s Changing Demographics

Aging Workers, Slowing Productivity: China’s Changing Demographics | GlobalAgingtimes | Scoop.it
This photo taken on November 22, 2015 shows elderly women playing mahjong at a nursing home in Beijing. Agence France-Presse/Getty Images China is aging and urbanizing. Its productivity rate is slowing and it still favors males. That’s all according to new data from China’s National Bureau of Statistics, which gives a glimpse at China’s 1.37 billion in numbers. The country’s working age population, ages 16 to 59, is shrinking, comprising 66.3% of the population in 2015. The number has slid from 67% a year earlier, 67.6% in 2013 and 69.2% in 2012. Demographers warned China’s leaders more than a decade ago about an oncoming labor pool shortage and this year they plan to address it by extending the country’s retirement age. According to the data, overall productivity has increased, but the growth rates are slowing, sliding to 6.6% in 2015 from 7.32% in 2012. More than half of the country’s 1.37 billion have fled the farm to work in cities over the past decade, as part of the government’s plan to urbanize the country and boost economic growth. Leaders say they want 60% of the country living in cities by 2020. China’s gender balance has remained the same over the last decade, with males still dominating the population. China is one of 18 countries in the world with a gender ratio above the normal range of 103 to 107 boys to every 100 girls, according to the state-owned China Daily, which says its current ratio is 115.88. –Laurie Burkitt.
