Another point that should be mentioned is that thanks to One Child Policy China was able to cope with national poverty rather effectively. Indeed, at the present moment per cent of the population that is recognized to experience absolute poverty is around 6% while it used to be more than 12% ("Poverty & Equity", 2015). This means that the introduction of the policy in question had a beneficial effect on the society in terms of reduction of poverty. This might be explained by the fact that the government was able to allocate the necessary resources and distribute them correctly.
However, there is no doubt that One Child Policy features a considerable number of negative aspects. The first one and the most obvious that is that it can not be called a successful one as the population of the country did not decrease or it is not that little as it was expected. Indeed, in 1980 which might be seen as the first year of this policy the population of China was only 980 million people; however, in 2014 it was as large as 1,350 million people ("Population", 2015). So, in almost thirty years time the government was not able to cope with the size of the population. Another indication of the ineffectiveness of the policy in question is the fact that the characteristic that the government wanted to change did change, but it did not have the desired effect. Indeed, if one analyzes the goals that were set by the policy, one might conclude that it achieved them very well. Thus, the population growth did drop dramatically. For example in 1980 it was around 1.3 while in 2014 it was estimated to be 0.5 ("Population growth", 2015). Nevertheless, over the end of the previous century China was not only able to reach the mark of 1 billion people, but in so little time as a decade and a half reach one third of another billion.
The next negative impact of One Child Policy is the distorted sex ratio in the population.
