Based on China's recently released 2010 population census data, this edited volume analyses the most recent demographic trends in China, in the context of significant social and economic upheavals. The editor and the expert contributors describe the main features of China's demography, and focus on the details of this latest phase of its demographic transition.

The book explores such striking characteristics of China's demography as the changing age and sex population structure; recent trends in marriage and divorce; fertility trends with a focus on sex imbalance at birth; the demography of the ethnic minorities and recent mortality trends by sex.

Analysing China's Population: Social Change in a New Demographic Era examines and assesses the impact of changes that in the coming decades will be crucial for individuals, and the larger society and economy of the nation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Isabelle Attane and Baochang Gu's collection of essays ... aims to address various defining patterns of China's demographic landscape in the early twenty-first century, some of which pose severe challenges to China's government. ... The collection of papers serves as a high reference value regarding overall trends and characteristics of China's population as well as consequence of social economy, and also as an important book with regard to the study of China's population development and social transformation." (Yan Wei, Canadian Studies in Population, Vol. 43 (3-4), 2016)
