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.
