Japan’s birth rate falls to record low in 2014

SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – Reports indicate that the fall in birth rate in Japan in 2014, is the fourth consecutive year and follows the estimated increase of the number of deaths at about 1.3 million last year. With the current rate, it is estimated that by 2050 the population could be as low as 97 million, 30 million lower than now. Decline of the number of people aged between 15 to 64 is predicted to lower potential growth and shrink Japan’s Gross Domestic Product.
