In 2015, Germany produced less than half the babies needed to maintain their workforce in future, with a 51% Birth Gap. The UK has a lesser problem with a 15% Birth Gap, while Ireland is the only EU country that is actually growing. Many other EU nations have Birth Gaps close to that of Germany. The drastic drop in births will soon be felt economically and socially through a drastic fall in the number of taxpayers to support pension schemes, pay national debts and attract investment.
Over 40 regional maps illustrating the Birth Gap for each corner of Europe. Data is provided by Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union.
