There are other developed countries with near replacement rate fertility

Reader comment on: Israel's Demographic Miracle

Submitted by Charlie Hall (United States), Mar 27, 2013 23:00

"Only the United States among the world's industrial nations has a fertility rate around the replacement level of 2.1"

This is false. From the CIA World Factbook the following fertility rates are found:

France 2.08

New Zealand 2.06

United States 2.06

Ireland 2.01

The World Bank has similar statistics:

France 2.0

New Zealand 2.1

Ireland 2.1

United States 2.1
