It is debatable whether raw census data can be effectively used to estimate total fertility rate (TFR), so most people prefer to believe that the fertility rate is as low as 1.4. This is not only lower than the average of less developed countries (excluding the least developed countries), but also lower than the average level of developed countries. A fertility rate of 1.4 puts China among countries with the lowest fertility.

The British guns and cannons were much better than Chinese weapons, and by 1842 Daoguang had to surrender. To end the war, China paid Britain a lot of money, and also agreed to let British traders use Chinese ports without being under Chinese laws.
