ABSTRACT
This article examines the political impact of population trends on China's Communist government. Asserting that China's population is increasing by more than 13,000,000 per year and that economic development cannot yet catch up with this rapid multiplication, the Chinese Communist Party newspaper's editorial urged the government to spread the use of birth control and to encourage youths to postpone marriage until age 25. This authoritative statement of policy is not the first indication of Red China's concern with population. In 1953, the State Council had instructed the health department to give public instruction on birth control, and efforts are made in 1954-1956 to strengthen this program.
