An explicit and computable criterion for strong ergodicity of single-birth processes is presented. As an application, some sufficient conditions are obtained for strong ergodicity of an extended class of continuous-time branching processes and multi-dimensional Q-processes by comparison methods respectively. Consequently strong ergodicity of the Q-process corresponding to the finite-dimensional Schlögl model is proven.
