Fertility and Immigration

Japan announced last week that the country’s birth rate had fallen to an all-time low of 1.25 births per woman.

With its falling birth rate, Japan is hardly alone among advanced countries. South Korea’s fertility rate fell to a record low of 1.08 in 2005, well below the global average of 2.6 children and the average in developed countries of 1.6.

As the article states, a birth rate of 2.1 is needed to maintain a stable population. For the anti-Americans who are against immigration, Japan provides an excellent peak in to our own future as our internal birth rate falls below 2.1.
