Europe / A Baby Recession ?

An interesting and forward looking study from the Eurostat on the demographic fallout from the current crisis predicting a so-called ‘baby recession’ in Europe.

The main thesis is that “Fertility is commonly assumed to follow the economic cycle, falling in periods of recession and vice-versa, though scientific evidence is still not unanimous on this. This report looks at fertility trends in 31 European countries against selected indicators of economic recession… in 31 European countries, the economic crisis spread in 2009, while decreases in fertility became a common feature in Europe with a time lag. … In 2008, there were no falls in the rate compared to the previous year, but by 2011, the TFR had declined in 24 countries.”
