Germany replaces Japan as country with world's lower birth rate


Germany’s birth rate has fallen to the lowest in the world, according to a study by an auditing firm.
The country has dropped below Japan to take the lowest birth rate globally, according to the study by the Hamburg Institute of International Economics (HWWI), prompting fears that labour market shortages could damage the economy.
The authors of the study also said that women’s participation in the workforce would be key to the country’s economic future, and warned that a shrinking working-age population could have negative effects.
