Today’s children are the next Succeeded. So the poet Sukanta Bhattacharya wrote, ‘The new baby has come, the place to leave him; In the scarce world, we must go to the failed, dead and debris-backed. “Although the poet has said that the world is going to be made restless, but for a newborn baby, it is a sort of bass, this world. The news of concern is that a recent report says that the number of children going down in the world is decreasing.
In an article recently published by the famous weekly magazine The Lancet Journal for Medical Research, researchers say that the number of children is decreasing day by day. As a result of population control policies in many countries of the world, the number of children is surprisingly decreasing. On the contrary, the number of elders is increasing. As a result, many countries do not have enough children to protect the balance of the population.
Researchers have been quite surprised after disclosing such information. They fear that due to this, the number of grandparents and grandchildren will increase in the society than the grandchildren. Which means that the number of old people will grow faster than the newer. The Lancet Journal has published this research article based on the review of the population of different countries between 1950 and 2017.
Studies show that in the 1950s, the rate of childbirth was 4.7 in the world. Last year it was reduced to 2.4 percent. However, there is a great difference between the differentiation of the numbers in different countries. Africa’s population in Niger is 7.1 percent. On the other hand, on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, an average woman does not have more than one child in her lifetime.
Christopher Murari, director of the Institute for Health Matrix and Evaluation, University of the University of Washington, says, “We have reached an epochal period where the expected birth rate in more than half of the countries is declining.” This is a significant change in society. ‘
Especially in economically advanced countries like Europe, USA, South Korea and Australia, the birth rate has decreased. But that does not mean that the number of population in these countries is declining. Because of the birth rate, death rate and immigrants, the population of these countries has remained the same as before.
In addition, in many countries, enough children are born, on the contrary, birth rates are increasingly decreasing in economically developed countries. There are currently a number of European countries, such as Germany, Latvia, which are suffering from low population problems. Japan’s low birth rate has now become the reason for the government’s headache.
