As part of our mini-series on fertility, we talk to a demographer about why fertility rates are declining in developing countries. Also within Europe, where social security benefits are dangerously generous, there are differences among countries.

Some of the most generous schemes are found in Germany, France, and the Mediterranean countries — as are the lowest fertility rates in the region. Start studying Western Civilizations Since Midterm 1 (Book). Learn vocabulary, terms, and more with flashcards, games, and other study tools.

The birthrate amongst native Europeans is desperately low and below reproduction rate; it has been low since but is now reaching pathetic levels. Europe is shrinking, Europe is dying.
