China is currently facing a dilemma as an aging workforce coupled with declining birth rates shrinks their viable labor pool. Workforce losses such as 2014-2015’s loss of 4.87 million workers has forced a close examination of the issues that resulted in the declining workforce and the options available to the Chinese government to avoid further declination in their labor force. By analyzing the most prominent solutions put forward by both the Chinese government and external researchers, this study will attempt to assess the viability of each option. This will be accomplished by looking at each solution in how they approach the historical causes for the issue, the practicality of implementation for the Chinese government, and any other cultural or ideological issues that may be barriers when enacting proposed solutions. The goal of this project is to analyze the available research and determine any data driven policy solutions.
