China population 90 million lower ?
The new research hasn’t been confirmed as authoritative, but it could help explain some changes in the Chinese economy.
China’s official population is 1.38 billion. A US based Chinese scientist, however, believes the Chinese birth rate has been over estimated since 1990. He concludes the revised population figure should be 90 million lower at 1.29 billion.
This would mean India now has the highest population in the world at 1.33 billion. Unless that has to be revised too.
