    is not going to help

    Dear all,

    Thanks in advance.

    China’s leaders often seem obsessed with the threat of unrest, and the necessity of stability. Looking at the bare statistics revealed by this census is not going to help them sleep any easier.

    The leaders are very concerned about unrest and the census figures are not going to calm them- there's nothing in a statistics to give them comfort.

    I cannot comment on this except to note that your choice of colors (especially the very pale green) makes this post impossible for me to read.
