Yeah you guys have so many kids and so much poverty you're killing off kids to get the desired gender.
Current estimates on poverty in the U.S. The official poverty rate is 12.7 percent,
based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2016 estimates. That year, an estimated 43.1 million Americans lived in poverty according to the official measure.
In 2017, China lifted 12.89 million rural people from poverty which put the poverty rate at 3.1 percent compared to its 4.5 percent the previous year
In the United States specifically, UNICEF reports that there are about four annual child homicides for every 100,000 people
China’s homicide rate in 2016 was 0.62 per 100,000 residents, one of the lowest rates in the world. The United States, in contrast, had a homicide rate of 5.35, placing it 114 spots behind China.
In the US, the prevalence of obesity was 18.5% and affected about 13.7 million children and adolescents.
Obesity prevalence was 13.9% among 2- to 5-year-olds, 18.4% among 6- to 11-year-olds, and 20.6% among 12- to 19-year-olds. Childhood obesity is also more common among certain populations.
Obesity in China is a major health concern according to the WHO, with overall rates of obesity between 5% and 6% for the country, but greater than 20% in some cities where fast food is popular. This is a dramatic change from times when China experienced famine as a result from ineffective agriculture plans such as the Great Leap Forward. ---Not as bad as the US, but still a problem!
