The Only Children

90M Chinese grow up as 'only' children
BEIJING - China's one-child policy has created a generation of "only" children that now numbers 90 million, a senior family planning official said Friday.

From the beginning of the one-child policy at the end of the 1970s through last year, some 90 million children who would never have siblings have been born, most in cities, said Zhao Baige, vice minister for China's National Population and Family Planning Commission.
