Taipei, March 25 (CNA) Taiwan has the lowest fertility rate in the world at 1.218 children per woman, according to a recent report by the World Population Review, which the Taiwan government challenged.
In the Fertility Rate by Country 2019 report, Taiwan appeared at the bottom of the list of 200 countries that was published by the World Population Review based in California.
Other countries with total fertility rates similar to Taiwan’s 1.218 children per woman were Moldova (1.23), Portugal (1.26) and Poland (1.29), according to the report.
In a press release, however, Taiwan’s National Development Council (NDC) said the rate for Taiwan did not match its data. [FULL STORY]
