To what extent can China’s demographic crisis due to the son preference custom during the one-child policy era be resolved?


Here is an anonymous survey on son preference for a research project related to this topic, feel free to complete it. Much appreciated. :)

    Previous generations of gender imbalanced populations have been decades in the making. You can just spawn extra 20 or 30 year old women out of nowhere. China could have easily let economic development alone bring down the birth rates. China like Singapore have backtracked on the one child policy when they realized it was too late.

    There are about 114 males for every 100 females in China. If I was one of those males, I'd consider that unsettling. You need to define the crisis. Australia was once the most lopsided w/ more females. These 2 need to get together.
