Declining community population

Other Names:
Diminishing rural population base
Reduced village population

A cause of population decline in the absence of national disaster is social malaise. Governments do not concern themselves closely enough with public health, so environmental pollution, drug and alcohol addiction, and underequiped health services cost many lives. People choose not to take on the task of bringing up children because their own daily survival is too precarious or difficult, which also increases the tendency to suicide.
