During the war, the women of Iran averaged about 8 children each, a ratio the hard-line Islamic President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wanted to revive.

The ratio of unmarried people has sharply increased for both men and women in their late 20s to early 30s.

      What greater sign could there be that our civilisation is dying than the fact that the majority of Europeans have The declining birth-rate book zest in life to replace themselves?

The most serious and potentially devastating impacts of population decline are mitigated in these nations by their affluence and their ability to draw on more fecund global population pools to offset their domestic demographic declines.

Sub-replacement fertility can represent an insurmountable roadblock for nations like Armenia on the path to western levels of prosperity: they may have a shot at benefiting from short-term demographic dividends, but they do not come anywhere near western levels of wealth as a result of said trends read: they get old before they get rich and when the window for the dividend ends and dependency ratios creep back up halting economic growththey are left stagnant and unable to close the still massive socio-economic gap between themselves and the western nations they hope to emulate. In an era of irreversible climate change and the lingering threat from nuclear weapons, it is simply not the case that population equals power, as so many leaders have believed throughout history. One age group — women in their early 40s — did see an increase in their birth rate inthe report found.

European civilisation is dying. There are many symptoms of this decline but the most deadly is that we are losing the will to breed. What portion of declining fertility is from single parent households, parents of The declining birth-rate book, parents of low educational attainment and parents of substance abuse.

Women of all economic, social, religious and educational persuasions are choosing to have fewer children as they are gaining more control over their own reproductive rights. The fact is that sub-replacement fertility is an issue.

Apart from the social pressures that depress birth rates, our civilisation is also under internal The declining birth-rate book from postmodern intellectual elites and their acolytes in The declining birth-rate book mass media, who enthusiastically embrace moral and cultural relativism, multiculturalism and political correctness and attack our values and weaken our will.

Developed countries have a lower birth rate than underdeveloped countries see Income and fertility. The social structure, religious beliefs, economic prosperity and urbanisation within each country are likely to affect birth rates as well The declining birth-rate book abortion rates, Developed countries tend to have a lower fertility rate due to lifestyle choices associated with economic affluence where mortality rates are low, birth control is easily accessible and children often can become an economic drain caused by housing, education cost and other cost involved in bringing up children.

Inthe government of Australia gave financial incentives to parents to have more children. This includes prohibition on practices such as child marriageforced marriage or bride price.

Are those who cheer for sub-replacement fertility alright with this outcome? Population concerns, as well as the desire to include women in the discourse, were discussed; it was agreed that improvements in women's status and initiatives in defense of reproductive health and freedom, the environment, and sustainable socioeconomic development were needed.

Many women delay having children until later in life and career pressures limit the number of children per family.

Where women are expected to 'choose' between their professional and public life, or having children, the more educated the woman is, the more likely she is to choose the former.

Some people comfort themselves with the thought that Europe can overcome its demographic problems through the large-scale absorption of immigrants. Keep in mind that this increasing separation of high education and professional achievement from fertility which, as the authors note, is a natural result of the growing sub-replacement fertility trend may well create future generations that are less well-adjusted and less well provisioned on average as they grow into adulthood, and perhaps less able to make the great technological and social advances we will need to make in the future in order to create a greener, safer, more equitable world.

There has also been discussion on whether bringing women into the forefront of development initiatives will lead to a decline in birth rates.

The declining birth

This oversupply of working-age labor relative to dependents can do wonders for The declining birth-rate book growth. Mexico, The declining birth-rate book Salvador, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Colombia, Venezuela and Peru have all seen significant drops in fertility in the same period, all going from over six to less than three children per woman.

Rural areas also tend to be more conservative, with less contraception and abortion than urban areas. Large numbers of people lost their jobs, and massive unemployment, lack of jobs outside the big cities, and economic uncertainty discourages people from having children.
