The absolute number of elderly-population in China is large and growing fast. According to the United Nations standards, China has fully entered the aging society. The aging of our country's population presents several characteristics: the aging is accelerated, the aging structure of both sexes is out of balance, and the aging of regions is out of balance. The phenomenon of accelerated aging shows that the natural population growth rate shows a downward trend, the total fertility rate is low, and the average life expectancy of the population is long. Based on the census and the population forecast of the United Nations, this paper analyzes the adverse effects of the aging of the population on the supply of labor force, capital accumulation, social security system and health care. In order to cope with the rapid population aging, we must set up a scientific population development view, and put forward some useful policy suggestions on this basis, including the saying "getting old before getting rich" is no longer in line with the current national conditions of China. The main obstacles to coping with ageing are "ageing before preparation" and "rural-urban disparity".
