"Some countries have had to resort to coercive population control during the explosive growth period, but even China is phasing out their population control efforts now - they recognise that their need has passed."

More like it's had an unfortunate side effect. They're still massive overpopulated (~1.7 billion), but now it's also massive imbalanced because China's social traditions have an almost exclusive focus on SONS (as in only sons can inherit the family name). The child limit exacerbated that problem.
