Age-Sex Statistics for China: What Do Recent National Disclosures and Local Figures Reveal?

Abstract

Whereas population numbers and growth rates receive much attention in discussions of the demographic situation in China, systematic analyses of the age-sex characteristics of the population--crucial to population growth--have been infrequent. A review of fragmentary data on age-sex characteristics for the nation as a whole, however, reveals that these data are being used increasingly to inform population debates in China. More detailed age-sex statistics available for several administrative subdivisions are suggestive of differences by sex in occupation and migration patterns.
