    China’s population grew at its slowest pace in decades, according to government data released on Tuesday.

    The average annual growth rate was 0.53% over the past 10 years, down from a rate of 0.57% between 2000 and 2010 – bringing the population to 1.41bn.

    The results add pressure on Beijing to boost measures for couples to have more babies and avert a population decline.
