Population Decline

German Population Plunge "Irreversible" (11/06)

[Federal Stats Office] One third of all European children will be born to Muslim families by 2025; the birthrate has dropped so low that immigration numbers cannot compensate.

Germany has the lowest birthrate in Europe – 1.36 children/woman average, with an expected pop loss of up to 12 million by 2050. [German news Deutsche Welle, 9Nov].

With a 22% reduction in the workforce and increasing costs for senior assistance and medical care, the drop in population is expected to have a radical impact on the nation’s economy, along with the welfare budget. [Deutsche Welle; Brussels Journal] There are an estimated 50 million Muslims living in Europe; this is expected to double over the next 20 years.
