China one-child policy: can dropping limits increase birth rates?

China's one-child policy started in the 1980s to slow population growth, with some exemptions eventually coming about.

In recent years it's been relaxed to allow families' to have two children. But, faced with an ageing population, the north-east could be the first region to drop restrictions all together.

However, it's uncertain if this will encourage young families to have more babies.
