The Third Plenum resolution, released on Friday reveals that China is to allow families in which either of the parents is a single child to have a second child, together with other reforms. The adjustment is considered to be a breakthrough in relaxing Chinas family planning policy. However, this step should be a beginning, rather than the end, of family planning policy reform.Compared with the past overriding policy that required most families to have only one child, a relaxed population policy and allowing people to exercise their reproductive rights is a manifestation of greater respect and autonomy for people.A mother photographs her daughter on a street outside the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing on Friday.

PHOTO BY ZOU HONG / CHINA DAILYAlthough more families are choosing to have one child or none for a variety of reasons, such as the rising cost of raising a child, there is no need for China to impose the mandatory one-child policy any longer.From a broader view, the central authorities decision to allow more families to have a second child is meant to reverse the already low fertility rate and maintain the countrys young labor resources. A relaxed population policy will contribute to a rise in the fertility rate by a limited degree – it is unlikely to lead to a population explosion.Based on the trial experiences of allowing a second child among four cities – Enshi in Hubei province, Yicheng in Shanxi province, Chengde in Hebei province, and Jiuquan in Gansu province – allowing couples to have a second child only raises the fertility rate to a limited extent. Even after granting people in the trial cities more chances to have a second child, the fertility rate remained low. According to the fifth national population census in 2000, the total fertility rate of these four cities was 1.31, a bit higher than the countrys overall total fertility rate of 1.22. In 2010, the total fertility rate of the four cities was 1.52 compared with the countrys overall rate of 1.18. Hence, even if the eased population policies are expanded across the country, the possibility of a national population explosion can be ruled out.China has experienced imbalanced demographic development since the strict family planning policy was introduced in the late 1970s. The policy, which should have “advocated” one child for most families, has turned out to be a strict birth control policy under which most families are allowed to have only one child. Since 1992, Chinas total fertility rate has dropped to under 1.6, well below the replacement level which is widely believed to be 2.1.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated StoriesPlenum: Not a paper tigerProperty prices to stabilize post-plenum: brokerExperts explain Third PlenumWhat to take from the Plenum?Investors edgy waiting for plenums new detailsChina on new starting point of reform after key plenumMost Viewed Todays Top NewsRising to the security challengesRussia faces tough road to successJoint efforts to meet challengesIs Vietnam safe?Abes dangerous moveForum TrendsForum trends: Cultural taboos in ChinaForum trends: Some “bad” habits Ive picked up in ChinaForum trends: Chinas number superstitionsHow to make friends with foreignersForum trends: You know you are in China when…(Part II)Chinas leftover women-intelligent and charmingForum trends: Why did you choose to live in China?ColumnistsHow good a govt India has gotNew type of urbanization is in the detailsFeatured ContributorsAsias increasing dependence on ChinaEat less, treat moreStar BloggersGetting old in ChinaWhen you look into the mirror today, imagine what you would say ten years from now about todays you.
