OK, now I understand. That was also the information I had. Tkx.

Btw, there is a new census coming up in November. I believe we'll have more reliable figures by end of 2010.

China is facing a problem of  age structre now. Luckly it is some how under control or at least the gov is trying to make it a better situation and raise wild awearness. When we talk about it in terms of problem, We are talking of it in the long run. It is not any more a problem of how the gov make policies, but how people do. of course people will be for the policies, but when policies changes and people have some room to choose, would they agree with the gov any longer? The example is that, you realese the one-child policy, they still insist on one child. People in urbun city, expecially educated ones, will not give more birthes to children anyway. That is what they they believe. So it will effect the education. If the educated people raise more children, it will be easier for the education. So on and so forth, the situation should be studied wisely taword a period span of at least 100years and wildly in every feild of the society.

You said 650 million rural earlier in your many post in 2009!

and we know there is 200 million working adults in urban areas!
(cannot be wrong, seen the hostels all over coastal regions!)
So, the old, single spouse left in the rural region, older farmers!
(single spouse cannot bear children without their wives or husbands! ha ha ha)

so up to 75% of the "fertile adults" are in urban centres!

blah blah blah......go work it out!

ha ha ha

Yes, some urban dwellers, esp the educated are not willing to raise a child. They have to face a lot of difficulties, economic and pyschological. So they cannot bear the burden of having a child. So if China relaxes one-child policy, they will not change their mind for they don't want to have one.
