According to a map of Gansu’s population circulating online, the province’s population peaked in 2010 with 25.598 million permanent residents.By 2020, gansu’s population will drop to 2.5010200 million.In 2021, the permanent population of Gansu province will be 24.902 million, 120,000 fewer than that in 2020.In 2021, 241,600 people were born, 200,600 people died and 35,500 people naturally increased, which means that the outflow population of Gansu in 2021 is about 155,500.According to the comparison of population data between 2021 and 2020 in Gansu Province, only Lanzhou, Jiayuguan and Linxia have positive population growth, while all the other 11 cities and prefectures have negative population growth.The negative population growth is mainly caused by the outflow of population, among which Wuwei, Pingliang, Tianshui, Qingyang, Longnan are the top five cities in the province.It can be seen that a large population outflow has become the main reason for the negative population growth in Gansu Province.In fact, as a native of Gansu, looking at the situation around me, I am not surprised by this figure.Because of gansu’s special geographical location and relatively harsh natural environment, there are few employment opportunities. Even if employment is possible, many units offer relatively low wages.Many relatives and friends around are working in Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, and coastal areas, although far from home, but the income level is still good.In addition, many college students will not choose to come back as long as there are opportunities outside. In addition, many rural farmers also choose to emigrate to Xinjiang and other places, which directly leads to a large outflow of population.In order to solve the trend of population outflow and maintain a relatively stable population, I think there is only one solution, that is, to continuously increase the number of jobs in this region, to continuously increase the value of jobs and salaries, to retain people with their careers, so that people can earn money without going out.
