The Communist Party of China (CPC) had a total of 87.793 million members at the end of 2014, a figure greater than the population of Germany.

Last year, CPC members increased by 1.1 million compared to 2013, up 1.3 percent, according to the Organization Department of the CPC Central Committee.

The grassroots Party units increased by 56,000 to 4.36 million, also up 1.3 percent, the department said in a communiqué published ahead of the 94th anniversary of the CPC's founding on July 1.

The statistics showed that the growth rate of CPC members has dropped while the structure of its members has improved, a proof of the increased vigor and vitality of the Party, the communiqué said.

In 2014 the CPC recruited 2.057 million new members, 351,000 less than in 2013, including 962,000 members from the front line of work and production, accounting for 46.8 percent of all new members.
