From the Paper:

"Although nearly one-fourth of the world's total population lives in China there is a shortage in China but is not what one would expect to hear in that there is a shortage of individuals in terms of workers and in terms of females available for marriage. This shortage is very severe on both accounts and is illustrated through the facts that there are not enough individuals of working age to support the elderly population that comprises a large percentage of the countries population. Just as impacting is the fact that there is a shortage of brides for the men in China that equals one million men per year beginning in the year 2020 without available women in the society for marriage and starting a family."
