Gender Imbalance Leaving Many Chinese Men Single
Adjust font size:

Chinese men born after the 1970s could find it difficult to find a spouse as many more baby boys were born than girls since the 1980s, says a report of the China Juvenile Research Center (CJRC).


China's fifth national census in 2000 shows that 119.92 boys were born for every 100 girls. "It's possible that men will not find a spouse among their contemporaries both now and in the future," said Chen Chen, an assistant researcher of CJRC.


Heavy work pressures are also contributing to men's problem of finding a spouse, the report says. About 58.6 percent of the respondents in a recent survey say they have a narrow circle of acquaintances, and 27.1 percent complain they are too busy with work to date.
