After China relaxes the One Child Policy, TIME, Wall Street Journal, & Associated Press feature research by CPC Fellow Cai

Nov 22, 2013

On Nov. 15, Chinese government officials announced that the One Child Policy will be relaxed. For years, Yong Cai has advocated for this change. His research has shown that China has a low fertility rate not because of the One Child Policy but because of economic and cultural factors. Cai is a Faculty Fellow of the Carolina Population Center and an Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
