UNION CITY, Calif., June 20, 2016 /Standard Newswire/ — According to the National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 64, No. 1 dated January 15, 2015, the Total Fertility Rate for Black American’s is 1.8, which is below the replacement level fertility rate of 2.1, the rate at which a generation can replace itself.
The Total Fertility Rate estimates the number of children that would be born if a mother were to live to the end of her childbearing years.
Total Fertility Rates are closely tied to growth rates for both countries and cultural groups and can be an excellent indicator of future population growth or decline.
Within the context of a nation, fewer children being born means that country’s political and economic power will decline with its population, based on the assumption that the military force that once could be deployed and paid for, will also decline.
Within the context of a culture, fewer children being born means that culture’s political and economic power will decline with its population, based on the assumption that the culture is politically and economically engaged.
