Abstract

This study empirically examines the effect of the One-Child Policy on China’s per capita real GDP growth rate by estimating a regression equation using the OLS procedure and a time-series data set from 1960 to 2008. The results of this study confirm the hypothesis that the One-Child Policy has positively contributed to China’s economic growth during the past thirty years. The study also finds that, all else being equal, an increase in the ratios of the working age to total population, young to old population, urban to total population, and the industry value added to GDP have significantly increased the growth rate of China’s per capita real GDP. The percentage change in the amount of capital per worker is also found to have a positive and significant effect on the growth rate of China’s per capita real GDP. On the other hand, this study finds no significant relationship between changes in China’s life expectancy, the ratio of China’s old to total population, or the ratio of China’s merchandise exports and imports relative to its GDP and the economic growth in China.

Lin presents his capstone paper.
