‘Childless boom’ among S European women

Posted on Wednesday, 11th January 2017 @ 04:18 PM by Text Size A | A | A

Women in Europe are having fewer children, particularly in southern Europe, a French report has found.

Up to a quarter of women born in the 1970s may remain childless, compared to an average of 15% in northern Europe and 18% in western Europe.

But the report points out childlessness was also very high about a century ago.

Some 17-25% of women born in the first decade of the 20th Century remained childless, due to factors including the deaths of many men of marriageable age in the First World War, the emigration of other young men in poor countries, and the effects of the 1929 Great Depression.
