In 2030, the population of China will reach 1.4 billion, an increase of 4.7% from 2012. Falling birth rates and increasing life expectancy mean that the population is ageing rapidly. In 2030 the median age will be 47.1 years and China will have the largest number of people over 65 years in the world. Imbalances between the sexes will continue with men aged 0-20 years accounting for 55.0% of all 0-20 year olds in 2030, compared to 54.8% in 2012.
