• Before the one child rule, people had to have lots of children to help them with their farming work, where they grew rice, which takes a lot of manual work, so the solution was to have more children.
• Also the social structure encouraged Chinese people to have big families because it was the “in” thing before.
• China didnt't get any plagues or many wars, which would have killed some of their population, like Europe.
