Many observers are concerned that aging will adversely affect public finances and standards of living. Analysis of newly available National Transfer Accounts data for 40 countries shows that fertility well above replacement would typically be most.

Our new book, The Global Spread of Fertility Decline: Population, Fear, and Uncertainty (Yale University Press, ) analyzes these trends and the demographic, political and economic consequences and uncertainties as low fertility has become a global phenomenon.

Like other facets of globalization, low fertility rates are by no means universal. Author(s): Ermisch,J Title(s): Some economic consequences of low fertility with special reference to Great Britain/ J.

Ermisch. Country of Publication: England Publisher: Centre for Studies in Social Policy, London, England,   Very low fertility rates could lead to population declines, which could be bad for the economy.

But what concerns most people is not the rate itself, but changes in the rate and how dramatic they are. Low fertility itself is not as bad as falling fertility can be. And given that most economists expect a recession in the next few years and recessions have negative fertility effects, any recovery in fertility in or will probably be short-lived, if.

This special issue of the European Journal of Population focuses on possible economic consequences of low fertility in Europe.

This introduction reviews the history of falling fertility in Europe and the literature that explores its causes, its potential implications, and possible policy. David E. Bloom and Alfonso Sousa-Poza, Introduction to Special Issue of the European Journal of Population: ‘Economic Consequences of Low Fertility in Europe’ Introduction au numéro spécial de la Revue Européenne de Démographie: ‹ Conséquences économiques des basses fécondités en Europe ›, European Journal of Population / Revue Cited by: The social problems associated with low fertility are also mirror images of those associated with high fertility: women now have fewer children than they want (see, e.g., Hewlett's () high-profile book about the personal crises of unintended childlessness), and women have children at late ages, with some questioning whether they should have.

In Africa, female education is an important driver of fertility decline, and a policy of expanding female education will have large fertility and economic growth effects (Canning, Raja, and Yazbeck ). Because such a policy will have both fertility and direct productivity effects on economic growth, it will be more difficult to analyze.

Consequences of low fertility. While many demographers are still quite tentative in their discussion of the causes of fertility decline, two main consequences of the low European birth rate since the s are becoming quite clear, and are by no means altogether favorable: an increase in population aging and a decline in total population.

In Great Britain or Norway, by contrast, fertility outside marriage is socially accepted and union dissolution has become a common experience, especially for cohorts born after (Basten et al. What does it feel like to live in a low fertility world. What are the consequences. Is there even a problem - economically, culturally and morally.

No other book confronts so many dimensions of the low fertility issue and none engage with the thorny issues of child psychology, parenting, family, and social policy that are tackled head-on here. This comes as no surprise given the importance of this topic, especially in low-fertility societies.

Studying the well-being consequences of parenthood helps researchers understand fertility. The global economic recession of has been followed by a decline in fertility rates in Europe and the United Sates, bringing to an end the first concerted rise in fertility.

Book Description: Building on the theory of the demographic transition, Michael S. Teitelbaum assesses the dramatic decline in British fertility from to in terms of social transformations associated with the Industrial Revolution.

His book is an intensive analysis of. Fertility rate, average number of children born to women during their reproductive years. For the population in a given area to remain stable, an overall total fertility rate of is needed, assuming no immigration or emigration occurs. It is important to distinguish birth rates—which are defined.

The total fertility rate is the expected number of births a woman would have over the course of her life. The decreasing relationship between the two variables demonstrates the connection between fertility choices and economic considerations.

In general, poor countries tend to have higher levels of fertility than rich countries.
