This concluding chapter places China's population changes in the context of world demographic transition. It shows that China's recent fertility and mortality decline has played a crucial role in controlling world population growth and improving life expectancy. Although contemporary Chinese society has some unique characteristics, China's demographic transition is by and large similar to that taking place in many parts of the world. The examination of demographic changes in China and other developing countries improves understanding of demographic transition in the world.
