Why are India’s fertility rates so low?
A lot of attention has been paid recently to India’s dwindling birthrate, which has seen its average annual birthrate plunge from 4.3 in 1980 to 2.9 in 2015.
It is due to a number of factors, but it has to do with social ills and poverty, including access to basic amenities such as water and sanitation, which India has had to put a lot of effort into to boost the birthrate.
But there is another reason why India’s birthrate is declining.
A new paper in the journal PNAS has highlighted one of the biggest hurdles India faces in tackling population ageing: over-consumption.
It was found that the rate of people over 65 in India, who make up the bulk of the country’s population, has been steadily rising.
Over the past 30 years, the rate has been rising at a rate of 1.5 per cent per year.
In 2015-16, the increase in the birth rate was 2.1 per cent.
It has been a long time since the country had a population of over 100 million people, which is how India currently stands at around 1.35 billion.
In other words, there are a lot more people in India than there are people to support them.
The article also found that over-population in India is not the only problem that is causing a decline in the fertility rate.
It found that India’s population is ageing at an alarming rate, and there is also a rise in suicides.
It is likely that the suicide rate in India will continue to rise in the years to come, which will have a detrimental impact on the fertility rates of the population.
The authors of the paper, Professor Rajendra S. Bhattacharya and Dr Amit Agarwal, have argued that the over-exposure of India’s citizens to pollution is a major factor behind the decline in fertility rates.
This is particularly true in rural areas, which are also known for having high rates of air pollution, as well as a higher rate of infant mortality.
The report also pointed out that the country is also facing a number other challenges.
While India has more than a billion people, there is a massive population in other countries like Bangladesh, which holds an average population of just over 1.3 billion.
India’s population growth is slowing.
The growth in India’s current population is about 1.2 per cent a year.
According to the latest projections, India’s growth rate will slow to around 0.5 percent a year from 2017-2022.
But the country has a huge amount of untapped population potential, which the authors believe could be used to make the country a more hospitable place for people to live.
They also point out that there is huge potential for economic growth.
According a study conducted by the US Federal Reserve, India has the potential to generate around $9 trillion per year if the population is kept at a manageable level of around 4 billion people.
The country could also benefit from investing in health infrastructure.
India is home to the world’s third largest population of elderly people.
While it is estimated that about half of the elderly in India live in rural India, a lot has to be done to alleviate this population.
