A report on Shanghai's population and family planning situation shows that the permanent resident population of Shanghai reached more than 22.2 million by the end of 2010, and the age structure in the city is severely out-of-balance as the population is considered "aging" and has a "low birth rate," according to a work conference on Shanghai's population and family planning on April 6.

The registered population of Shanghai reached more than 14.1 million by the end of 2010, and the floating population that have stayed in Shanghai for more than half a year reached nearly 8.3 million.

The number of registered elderly aged 60 years and older reached nearly 3.2 million. The proportion of teenagers is seriously low, with their number standing at only 1.2 million in 2009, representing only around 8 percent of the total population in Shanghai and more than 10 percentage points lower than the national average level.
