Any fertility below this rate signals fewer new babies than parents, leading to an eventual population decline. Experts predict that world fertility will further drop from to children per woman by This means that global population growth will slow down or possibly even go negative.

The UN Population Division produces projections of the TFR for countries that are at various stages of the fertility transition. The TFR projections are revised every two years and published in the World Population Prospects (United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division ).

The UN produces deterministic. Consider three hypothetical scenarios * for the levels of human population in the century ahead. Fertility declines within sixty years from the current rate of to a global replacement average of children per woman. The current population momentum would lead to at least 11 billion people before leveling off at the end of the 21st century.

Chapter Stabilizing Population by Reducing Fertility: Filling the Family Planning Gap. Given the immediate need to slow world population growth, it would be easy to assume that couples everywhere by now have access to family planning services.

Fertility is the natural capability to produce offspring. As a measure, fertility rate is the number of offspring born per mating pair, individual or population.

Fertility differs from fecundity, which is defined as the potential for reproduction (influenced by gamete production, fertilization and carrying a pregnancy to term) A lack of fertility is infertility while a lack of fecundity would.

Fertility transitions are achievable, but they are contingent on deliberate choices and actions by governments and individuals.In turn, fertility rates - that is, the average number of children per family - have dropped from to in the developing world, halfway to a "replacement" level of per couple, which is.Galor, O, and D N Weil (), “Population, technology, and growth: From Malthusian stagnation to the demographic transition and beyond”, American Economic Review 90(4): Guinnane, T (), “The historical fertility transition: A guide for economists”, Journal of Economic Literature 49(3):
