2020年1月17日，国家统计局公布的数据显示，我国总数已经正式突破14亿大关。其中男性 71527万人， 人口68478万人，也就是说全国男性比 多出3049万人。虽然这个数字听起来很夸张，不过专家表示这个数字更多的是传递了一种积极的信息。
On January 17, 2020, according to the data released by the National Bureau of statistics, China's total population has officially exceeded the 1.4 billion mark. Among them, the male population is 715.27 million, and the female population is 684.78 million, which means that there are 30.49 million more men than women in the country. Although the figure sounds exaggerated, experts say it is more of a positive message.
In fact, in recent years, this number has been declining at the rate of almost one million people per year: 33.59 million more men than women in 2016; 32.66 million more men than women in 2017.
From the perspective of gender ratio, there has been a decrease in gender ratio for 14 consecutive years in China. According to the sample survey of 1% of the population in 2005, the proportion of male and female population in China is 106.30:100. In 2018, the sex ratio of China's total population was 104.64. In 2019, the figure dropped to 104.45.
"There are more than 30 million more men than women, which is a very high number, but it is mainly due to the accumulation in the past." Cui Shuyi, a researcher at the Demographic Research Institute of Shandong Academy of Social Sciences, told the 21st century economic reporter, "in fact, with the improvement of China's fertility policy, people's choice of gender has also returned to rationality. In the future, the sex ratio will slowly decline and return to a reasonable range."
However, the current gender issue in our country, there are also regional imbalances. Research in some areas shows that the situation of "surplus men" in rural areas is very serious.
比如，湖南省第三次农业普查结果显示，农村人口中男性多于女性，其中男性人口 2755.13万人，比女性人口多 291.34万人，男女性别比为 111.82。在各个年龄段中男女性别比均高于100，其中，0-9岁及10-19岁是男女比例最为不平衡的两个年龄段，性别比分别高达124.96和125.90。
For example, the results of the third agricultural census in Hunan Province show that there are more men than women in the rural population, including 27.5513 million men, 2.9134 million more than women, and the gender ratio is 111.82. In all age groups, the sex ratio of men and women is higher than 100, of which 0-9 years and 10-19 years are the most unbalanced age groups, and the sex ratio is as high as 124.96 and 125.90 respectively.
