Fertility Rates of Muslim and Non-Muslim Countries


By Bernie on 02 Sep 2010


For the purposes of an upcoming article I will need the following table of fertility rates for 224 countries.

Definition:The following entries give the average number of children that would be born per woman if all women lived to the end of their childbearing years and bore children according to a given fertility rate at each age. The total fertility rate (TFR) is a more direct measure of the level of fertility than the crude birth rate, since it refers to births per woman. This indicator shows the potential for population change in the country.

A rate of two children per woman is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms of total numbers. Rates above two children indicate populations growing in size and whose median age is declining.

Rates below two children indicate populations decreasing in size and growing older. Global fertility rates are in general decline and this trend is most pronounced in industrialized countries, especially Western Europe, where populations are projected to decline dramatically over the next 50 years.

Information taken from CIA World Factbook - and, unless otherwise noted, is accurate as of January 1, 2009.

The table has been modified from Index Mundi by indicating in red those countries whose populations are 50% or greater majority Muslim and in indicating in pink those countries on their way to becoming Muslim majority (30% or more Muslim).

It should be noted that except for one nation, no European country has a fertility rate high enough to keep their population from declining. The one exception is Albania, a 70% Muslim majority country. Naturally.
