It was enforced at the provincial level and enforcement varied; some provinces had more relaxed restrictions. The one-child policy, a part of the family planning policy, was a population planning policy of China. The policy was keenly resisted in rural areas, where it was traditional to have large families. Census Data and Ageing Populations – single lessonSingle lesson; very traditional lesson to introduce the uses of census data and ageing populationsBy alisoncarrie(0)€2. The most important of the new measures was a one-child policy, which decreed that couples in China could only have one child. People could only have one child per married couple unless they wanted to have a fines which would bankrupt the wealthier families. This policy was made because the population of china was going up too quickly and this meant that the population was too high for the land mass and resources used.
There wont be enough young adults to support the elderly which creates a unsustainable population and higher dependency as population ages.

Infant mortality rate was also high, and so with death rate and birth rate, which means that the population was increasing at a very slowly rate. The plan called for families to have one child each in order to curb a then-surging population and limit the demands for water and other resources,  as well as to alleviate social, economic and environmental problems in China. Provincial governments imposed fines for violations, and the local and national governments created commissions to raise awareness and carry out registration and inspection work. Although the fertility rate began to decline, the Chinese government observed the global debate over a possible overpopulation catastrophe suggested by organizations such as Club of Rome and Sierra Club. Thailand and Iran, along with the Indian states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, have had similar declines of fertility without a one-child policy.
Richer families can afford more children and for this reason they can afford the fine which is placed, as well as the health care and schooling fees. Many people claim that some women, who became pregnant after they had already had a child, were forced to have an abortion and many women were forcibly sterilised. The one-child limit was most strictly enforced in densely populated urban areas. Since major incidents such as earthquakes and this has caused deaths of children, and some couples only could have one child, so for this reason couples with lost children could have more children. In these days, large families where encouraged, since the government followed a pro-natalistic population policy.
But by the 1970s the government realised that current rates of population growth would soon become unsustainable. This is idea for the human geography paper, or just an example for another subject which uses this case study in the exams. The government relaxed the policy in the countryside for couples that their first child was a girl. Women were forced to have abortions as late as the 9month of pregnancy which raised human rights issues. There have been negative impacts too – due to a traditional preference for boys, large numbers of female babies have ended up homeless or in orphanages, and in some cases killed.
In urban areas, the policy has been enforced strictly but remote rural areas have been harder to control. Very, however the later effects will be seen when the population needs to even out, and such there will be men which cannot have children because there is less women there. Still today this policy is going on and requieres sterilization for couples with two children, and abortion for women pregnant without authorization.
