China has the largest population in the world, with a shocking number of 1.3 billion people and growing by the minute. The overpopulation was such a problem that in 1980 it made the one-child policy, which allowed each family in China only one child.

Also question is, why is overpopulation a problem?

Other problems associated with overpopulation include the increased demand for resources such as fresh water and food, starvation and malnutrition, consumption of natural resources (such as fossil fuels) faster than the rate of regeneration, and a deterioration in living conditions.

How does China deal with overpopulation?

The country had feared that population growth was hindering economic development, so in 1979, the Chinese government implemented one crucial policy to control its population: a one child per family policy. It also implemented birth control programs and offered economic incentives to families with fewer children.

Why will China population decrease?

Study: China faces 'unstoppable' population decline by mid-century. The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences report suggests that the decline in fertility rates will lead to a decrease in overall population to 1990-era levels of 1.172 billion by 2065. World Bank data from 2017 showed a Chinese population of 1.386 billion

Is China overpopulated today?

Overpopulation in China began after World War II in 1949, when Chinese families were encouraged to have as many children as possible in hopes of bringing more money to the country, building a better army, and producing more food.
On a global scale, gender inequality in China is relatively slight. In 2014, China ranked 91 out of 187 countries on the United Nations Development Programme's Gender Inequality Index (GII). Among the GII components, China's maternal mortality ratio was 32 out of 100,000 live births.
India and China have so many people today because they're good for farming and big, but they've always been that way, so they've actually had a huge proportion of Earth's people for thousands of years. Info about world population growth: https://ourworldindata.org/world-popu References: India.
The fertility rate due to the population policies and other measures has been falling but even then it is much higher compared to other countries. This means that the birth rate has been falling, but with rapid progress in medical sciences, the death rate has fallen which has ensured that the population grows.
5 possible solutions to overpopulation
  1. Empower women. Studies show that women with access to reproductive health services find it easier to break out of poverty, while those who work are more likely to use birth control.
  2. Promote family planning.
  3. Make education entertaining.
  4. Government incentives.

Rapid population growth decreased differential per capital income. The results showed the depletion effect on national income from increased population growth. Prior to 1978, the economic depletion in China was due to the impact of the marginal population and, after 1978, the depletion was due to increased consumption.
Despite being the world's second-largest economy and home to the most billionaires, China is still categorised as a "developing" country and enjoys the same "special and differential treatment" afforded to nations like Papua New Guinea and Zimbabwe.

Both domestic and global population growth is adding to conflicts over water, energy, food, open space and wilderness, transportation infrastructure, school rooms, and numerous other problems. In developing countries, large family size is a major cause of poverty and poor health.
Most contemporary estimates for the carrying capacity of the Earth under existing conditions are between 4 billion and 9 billion. Depending on which estimate is used, human overpopulation may have already occurred. Nevertheless, the rapid recent increase in human population has worried some people.

Population growth increases food demand and therefore the demand for agricultural land. Since rationally acting agents use the economically most suitable resource first, additional agricultural land is likely to be less profitable.
Earth's capacity
Many scientists think Earth has a maximum carrying capacity of 9 billion to 10 billion people. [How Do You Count 7 Billion People?] One such scientist, the eminent Harvard University sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson, bases his estimate on calculations of the Earth's available resources.
Overpopulation means that the population of a place is too high. Specifically, there are too many organisms of a certain species in a habitat, so the number of organisms living there is larger than the carrying capacity of the habitat. The habitat cannot support these numbers over time without hurting itself.
