Nearly Two in Three Chinese are Free to Have More than One Child
So much for the one child policy.
Less than 40% (35.9) of the Chinese population are actually restricted to having just one child – the 'one child policy.'
Except in Central China's Henan Province, couples can have two children if they are both only children.

And…where has this rule been hiding all these years?
In rural areas, (more than half the population) couples are allowed to have a second child if their first is a girl (the so-called "one-and-a-half
Minority groups, abt 11% of the population, are free to have two or more children.
All those kids who grew up in the 70s and 80s as single children…are now marrying age….and free to have two kids.
Is this policy suddenly coming to light because of the severe shortage of girls? like 37 million too few?
