The Chinese population accounts for one-fifth of the world's total, so any change in Chinese mortality will have a great influence on the change of the world population.
Before 1949, Chinese population mortality was 25-33%, the high year was 40%, and infant mortality even reached over 250 per 1000 live births.
After 1949, the mortality had a rapid decline: it was 20% in 1949, and 14-18% in 1950-1964.
But in 1960, mortality went up to 25.43% because of the natural disasters.
Since 1965 it has been under 10%. Chinese mortality was 6.58% in 1988.
The lowest proportion was 4.95% in Heilongiiang Province.
The highest was 7.13% in Yunnan Province.
Urban mortality has always been lower than that of the countryside.
