This volume is based on Green Book of Population and Labor No. 16 originally published in Chinese. Chapter one reviews developments in population and family planning during the 12th five-year plan period (2011–2015), presents forecast, and examines the relationship between demographic changes and economic development. Chapter two focuses on population movement trends and employment situation of rural migrant workers. The country’s overall employment situation in this period is presented in chapter three. Chapter four examines trends in China’s labor supply and demand. Chapters five and six look at recent progress in and development of China’s old-age insurance and medical insurance systems. As in previous volumes, this one contains policy suggestions for labor market development and population management.

This translation of selections from Reports on China’s Population and Labor (No. 17) allows readers to take stock of what China has done to tackle some of the country’s most important demographic and labor-related issues. The volume opens with two articles on the universal two-child policy, one of the most eagerly anticipated and closely watched population policy changes in recent years. These are followed by new population forecasts based on the new policy, and an analysis of what they mean for education resource allocation. In addition to familiar topics such as household registration, pension system reform and income distribution, this volume devotes considerable space to examining challenges facing Chinese women, especially those related to employment and marriage.
