U.S. Fertility Rate Far Outpaces Europe, Asia

Tuesday, 26 Jan 2010 09:34 AM


America's population growth makes it a notable outlier among the advanced industrialized countries.

The country boasts a fertility rate 50% higher than that of Russia, Germany or Japan and well above that of China, Italy, Singapore, North Korea and virtually all of eastern Europe.

Add to that the even greater impact of continued large-scale immigration to America from around the world.

By the year 2050, the U.S. population will swell by roughly 100 million, and the country's demographic vitality will drive its economic resilience in the coming decades.

This places the U.S. in a radically different position from that of its historic competitors, particularly Europe and Japan, whose populations are stagnant. The contrast between the U.S. and Russia, America's onetime primary rival for world power, is particularly dramatic.
