Beijing's population growth dip in line with quality development

China Daily | Updated: 2021-05-21 00:00

According to Beijing's census data released on Wednesday, the capital has 21.89 million permanent residents, which means an annual average growth of 1.1 percent over the past decade, 2.7 percentage points lower than in the preceding 10-year period. China released the findings of the seventh national census last week, which were further dissected to give an insight into the makeup of the capital's population.

The population trend in Beijing has invited widespread attention. Although the pace of growth has slowed down, it is still higher than twice the national average of 0.53 percent.

Despite a decelerated growth rate, Beijing's population structure is in a relatively good shape. For example, the proportion of people aged 15-59 in Beijing is more than 5 percentage points higher than the national average, while the proportion of people aged 65 or above is lower than the national average, indicating Beijing's labor supply and vitality are still ahead of the national average.
