China’s era of the single child is coming to an end.
The country first eased its controversial population control practice in 2013, allowing some married couples to have a second child. Today, the Communist Party has announced that it’ll drop the one-child policy altogether to counter the aging of its population.
This is good news for Chinese married couples, but could it also cause a shift in demographics in Southern California? Could we also see an increase in Chinese immigration? How will it affect Southern California’s demographic makeup?
