China, while maintaining high speed in economic growth, has made tremendous social progress since 2000, particularly in the provision of general education and health services. In the same period, the society is rapidly aging, particularly in North and Northeastern China where the proportion of population over 65 years of age has exceeded twenty percent. Decision makers are facing difficulties in balancing the protection expenses between the young and the old. This book aims to describe the situations of children and youth in China, a country characterized by regional disparities and urban-rural divisions in every social aspect. The book aims to report the many hardships and difficulties youth and children face when support from the State or public goods are unavailable. It also aims to identify areas of future growth.
