According to watchtutorials, China is the most populous nation in the world with a population of 1.4 billion people. It is estimated that approximately 65% of China’s population lives in urban areas, while 35% live in rural areas. The population density of China is 148 people per square kilometer, making it one of the most densely populated countries in the world. The majority of the population is Han Chinese, which accounts for 92% of the total population. Other ethnic groups include Zhuang, Manchu, Hui, Uighur, Tujia and Miao among others. The average life expectancy for Chinese citizens has increased considerably over recent years and currently stands at 77 years old for men and 82 years old for women. This is largely due to improved healthcare access and advances in medical technology as well as better nutrition and living standards throughout China. The birth rate in China has been declining since 2012 due to an aging population, increased access to contraception and changing social attitudes towards family size and structure. As a result, it is estimated that by 2050 there will be more elderly people than young people in China; this could have a significant impact on economic growth as well as social services such as healthcare and pensions.
