  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “China’s population growing at slowest pace in decades” – below is their description.

    China’s population is growing at its slowest pace since the 1950s, with falling births and a rapidly ageing population.

    A once-in-a-decade census also revealed the population grew by more than five percent to 1.41 billion people.

    But, as Al Jazeera’s Katrina Yu reports from Beijing, experts predict that number will start to decline within the next five years.
