A year after China eased its one-child policy, fewer people than expected have applied for permission to have a second child, state media said on Monday, raising concerns among scholars that China could face a demographic crisis as birth rates decline.

The figures cited by the China Youth Daily will add to growing calls for the government to scrap all family planning restrictions as China faces the prospect of becoming the first country in the world to get old before it gets rich.

While China is the world's most populous nation with 1.34 billion people, many analysts say the one-child policy has shrunk China's labour pool, hurting economic growth.

For the first time in decades the working age population fell in 2012.

In late 2013, China said it would ease family planning restrictions to allow millions of families to have two children in the country's most significant liberalisation of its strict one-child policy in about three decades.

Under the reform, couples in which one parent is an only child would be allowed to have a second child.
