Korea Journal of Population & Development

Author: Gu, S., Zhu, N., Chen, X., Liang, J.
Year: 1995
Type: Journal Article

Abstract:

After a brief review of the population aging process in the People's Republic of China, two supporting systems for the aged are examined drawing on national statistics and a regional probability sampling survey conducted 1991-1994 in Wuhan (N = 3,543 respondents ages 60+ at Wave 1). The formal and the informal support systems for the aged are compared in terms of arrangement, operation, and funding mechanisms, followed by an international comparison to highlight features and problems of the Chinese systems. Finally, solutions are proposed for the restructuring of China's pension system, & other policy reforms.
