    The Chinese birth rate is quite interesting.

    And 10.94 for 2018.

    Now, the interesting is that if we pick the from 2004 ( to cut out the high years) then the biggest deviation from the series is 2016 and 2018.
    "2018 two times bigger than 2016, and to the other direction.

    Now, the 16+17+18 average is nearly the same like the 04-15 average : O

    BEIJING, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- China's rapid growth in domestic tourism continued in 2018 when the country recorded a total of 5.54 billion domestic tourist trips, up 10.76 percent year-on-year, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism announced Wednesday.

    Domestic traveling brought a total of 5.13 trillion yuan (764 billion U.S. dollars) in revenue to the tourism sector last year, registering a 12.3 percent increase compared with 2017, according to the ministry at a press conference.

    With growing cultural consumption demand by residents, China saw its per capita expenditure on consumption on education, cultural and entertainment products increase 6.7 percent to 2,226 yuan (331 U.S. dollars) in 2018, accounting for 11.2 percent of per capita consumption expenditure, the ministry said.

    As urbanization in China continued to advance and people's livelihood improved steadily in recent years, residents' cultural and tourism consumption expenditure continued to increase and has evolved to become a new economic growth area, according to ministry officials.

    Officials at the press conference stressed the importance of supplying quality cultural and tourism products during the Spring Festival holidays and called for efforts to promote new tourism consumption areas like winter sports and springwater tours.

    Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) falls on Feb. 5 this year and is the most important festival in China.

    BEIJING, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- The purchasing managers' index (PMI) for China's manufacturing sector came in at 49.5 this month, slightly up from 49.4 in December, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Thursday.

    A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while a reading below reflects contraction.

    The slight increase ended month-on-month declines reported in the previous four months in a row, NBS senior statistician Zhao Qinghe said in a statement.

    The sub-indices for production and raw material inventories both edged up from December, while those for new orders, employment, and supplier delivery time dropped to different extents.

    Large companies saw the manufacturing PMI up 1.2 points to 51.3, whereas the readings for medium-sized and small companies dropped 1.2 and 1.3 points, respectively.

    Zhang Liqun, researcher with the Development Research Center of the State Council, said the new data pointed to signs of the country's economic stabilization, but the foundation still needs to be consolidated.

    This month, the non-manufacturing PMI rose 0.9 points from December to 54.7, and the composite PMI output index rose 0.6 points to 53.2, the NBS data showed.

    China's GDP growth was 6.6 percent in 2018, above the government's annual target of around 6.5 percent, but slightly down from the revised growth of 6.8 percent for 2017.
