Population 1.0Chinas population has been skyrocketing over the past decades and isn't showing any obvious signs of slowing down. Since World War II the population of China has been told to conceive more children to bump up the fallen soldiers taken in the war.

In the 1950's their population was sitting on 563 million people. Then Mao's plan took full effect pushing their population to over one billion people by the 1980's. And is said to be reaching an astonishing 1.4 billion by 2010 and in 2030 it is said to peak and then start to drop. India, currently the second most populated country in the world, is expected to overtake China sitting on 1.54 billion people by 2040.
