Contrary to popular American or Western opinions because of the one child policy, the population in China is still growing but slowly at 0.655%. There are 14 births for every 1000 people and the death rate is 7.06 deaths per 1000. The one child policy applies to urban Han Chinese.

Life expectancy at birth is 73.47 years. When Mao won China, that life expectancy was 36 years. Religions: Daoist (Taoist), Buddhist, Christian 3%-4%, Muslim 1%-2%. The rest of the population is officially atheist (2002 est.) Source: CIA Factbook
