THE NUM­BER

3 MEM­BERS

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

The aver­age num­ber of people in a Chi­nese fam­ily home is get­ting smaller, with sin­gle-per­son house­holds on the rise, ac­cord­ing to an of­fi­cial re­port on fam­ily de­vel­op­ment on Wed­nes­day. The aver­age num­ber of fam­ily mem­bers in a home fell to three in 2012 from five in the 1950s as a re­sult of low birthrates, late mar­riage and pop­u­la­tion mi­gra­tion, said the re­port pub­lished by the Na­tional Health and Fam­ily Plan­ning Com­mis­sion.
