Chinese Research Perspectives on Population and Labor: Volume 1

This English-language volume is an edited collection of articles selected from the 2011 and 2012 Chinese-language volumes of the Green Book of Population and Labor. This volume starts with a chapter that explores the trajectory and future of China's demographic changes, as well as the role population projections should play in population policy through a comparison of data from the Sixth Population Census conducted in China and the United Nations population projection. Other topics discussed in this volume include changes in fertility and their implications to the labor market; demographic transition and its contribution to economic growth; employment structure and its problems; and reform of the labor market. This volume intends to draw lessons from the experiences and discuss trends of the labor market and social protection. Chinese Research Perspectives on Population and Labor is a co-publication between Brill and Social Sciences Academic Press (China).
