2% decline of Chinese population purely arithmetic – Minister
Mohamed Yakcop said that while the numbers show as such, it does not necessarily meant that there were fewer births among the Chinese community. Saying that such a figure was ‘purely arithmetic’ and does not have any reflection that the percentage of Chinese in Malaysia was getting smaller he added that the proportion might be changed due to the latest census being compiled against the backdrop of a larger population even if the growth rate remained the same throughout the period. He said that the implication of the figure is very minor even if Chinese families are having fewer children.
