More than half of Chinese parents do not want a second child, and 25 percent remain hesitant, according to a new study that highlights the challenges facing efforts to inject new blood into an aging population.

The report, released on Thursday by the All China Women's Federation and Beijing Normal University, found that 62 percent of parents in developed regions alone are unwilling to have a second child despite their relative financial security in China.

Researchers interviewed 10,155 parents whose children are under age 15.
