China's birth rate dropped last year to its lowest level since the Communist country was founded in 1949, adding to concerns that an ageing society and shrinking workforce will pile pressure on a slowing economy

The government relaxed its one-child policy in 2016 to allow people to have two children, but the change has not resulted in more pregnancies.

Still, China's population stood at 1.4 billion by the end of 2019, increasing by 4.67 million from the year before.The NBS said there were 896.4 million people aged between 16 and 59 - its population of working age - a drop from the 897.3 million in 2018.
