Fertility rates & population replacement

Fertility and birthrates are among the most closely monitored indicators of a country’s economic health.

A record high of 83 countries report below-replacement level fertility rates.

When the population is too low, economies contract, and lead to a shrinking labour force and a substantial increase in the proportion of elderly.

The rise of this dependent older population has repercussions, especially regarding retirement ages, pensions, taxes, voting, health expenditures, and elder care.

We asked 12541 M3 members in Europe (UK, France, Italy, Spain and Germany), Canada and USA

 "Are you concerned about the declining worldwide fertility rates?"

 You can find below a cross-continental analysis on how the M3 Global Research community answered to this question.

From the healthcare professionals surveyed in Europe, Spain was the most concerned about the decrease of fertility rates while Germany demonstrated less concern amongst the countries surveyed.

  1. Far as I have learned most countries have stricter laws on abortion as America is trying to pass laws to have abortion. That is the result of less new people to grow up pay taxes and to take over to run this country. Fertility is just a small percentage comparing to abortions in this country.
