The population problem has always been a major problem restricting China's comprehensive, coordinated and sustainable development. It is a key factor affecting economic and social development. The phenomenon of low fertility has brought great impact on China's development. Therefore, it is very important to analyze the reasons behind the low fertility rate. Based on the analysis of the data of the seventh census and the relevant national data, this study finds that the significant changes in the concept of marriage and childbearing of women of childbearing age, the decrease in the number of women of childbearing age and the aging of age structure and the dual fertility pressure of economy and environment have caused the current low fertility of women. This paper attempts to provide some suggestions for reference on this basis, actively respond to the low fertility rate and promote the long-term balanced development of the national population.
