About the product

This set of papers, written by experts, examines recent fertility trends in countries that are already exhibiting fertility below replacement, determinants of below replacement fertility, future expectations for fertility, consequences of sustained below-replacement fertility and policy, and programme options. The United Nations Population Division projects that by 2015, the world's population is likely to reach 7.3 billion with two thirds of the population living in 88 countries at or below what demographers call replacement-level fertility.
