When will natural growth end?

The first country in which the number of deaths exceeded the number of births was Germany — and this happened back in 1972. It was followed by Hungary (1982) and the Czech Republic (1986)

Between 1990 and 2020, natural population growth stopped in many European countries, in Russia and Japan, and in the coming decades (until 2050), according to forecasts, this will happen in most of the remaining European countries, in China, Canada, Brazil, Chile and a number of other countries

The least developed countries will last the longest: only somewhere after 2100 natural population growth is predicted to stop in most African countries, some countries of Central Asia and the Middle East, and two more developed countries: Australia and Sweden
