Unprecedented population reversal

Late last week Joseph Chamie, an independent consulting demographer and a former director of the United Nations Population Division, wrote an interesting opinion piece entitled ‘The historic reversal of populations’.

The “historic reversal” to which Chamie refers is the demographic turning point when children in a population become fewer than its elderly.

    I didn’t notice many muslim majority countries on that population reversal list. Something else for the demographers to consider.
