According to the latest statistics from the prestigious Lancet quarterly, the number of human births has been declining for about 65 years. These days, half of human communities are in the negative line of population growth. If every woman in every family has two children, it means that the death rate will be equal to the birth rate. But over the past half century, the trend for fewer women in the world has steadily progressed.
Sixty years ago, every woman gave birth to an average of 4 to 5 children, which is half the number these days. Currently, 90 countries in the world have less than two children per woman. This will reduce the number of young people and increase the number of older people The Earth’s population has grown steadily by 87 million over the last ten years, but the main reason is the decline in mortality, not more births البته Africa, of course, still has the highest percentage of world population growth.
The important point is that our planet’s communities have come in two very different forms in terms of reproduction. In many countries we have one child and eventually two children, but in some countries with positive population growth, such as Nigeria, the average childbearing rate is seven.
The report, which includes statistics from 140 countries and 3,500 researchers, identifies high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes and obesity as the leading causes of death on our planet.
