Poverty affected fertility rates

Other Names:
Over-population through impoverishment
The highest fertility rates tend to be found in countries suffering from poverty, food insecurity and natural resource degradation. Since falling fertility is correlated with rising income and improvements in areas such as health care, employment and women's education, a transition to stable population numbers in these regions cannot be taken for granted without the necessary development.
