China's population was approaching one billion people when the government introduced the "one family, one child" policy. This was in the late 1970s. By the fall of 2015, China decided to abandon this policy due to unforeseen consequences, including a shift towards men in percentage and a disproportionately large number of elderly people. By allowing families to have two children, China hopes to restore the balance of its demography. Now there are 1.4 billion people living in China, and only time will tell how much the abolition of the restriction on the number of children in the family will affect the indicators.

These photos demonstrate how many people there are in China, and make you shudder at the thought of the almost complete lack of personal space. Introverts would have a hard time in such conditions.
