Rosstat: Fertility rate dropped to 1.41, hitting a multi-year low

According to Rosstat data, in 2023 Russia updated the minimum fertility rate, which had been maintained for 17 years. Thus, the average number of children per woman decreased to 1.41. However, compared to last year’s figure, the decrease was insignificant, since at that time the coefficient was 1.42. RBC writes about this.

The reason for such dynamics was the fact that fewer women who were born in the 1990s entered the age of childbearing. At the same time, an increase in the number of third and subsequent children per mother was recorded. It is noted that in 2023, the slowdown in the decline in the birth rate is argued by the effectiveness of government support measures.

In accordance with the results of last year, even against the backdrop of a general decline in the birth rate, the number of large families in Russia maintained an upward trend. According to experts, at the present time there is a potential for maintaining the upward trend in the birth rate, especially due to the appearance of second and subsequent children.

Previously Public News Service reportedthat the First Deputy Head of the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation, Olga Batalina, told how the order of President Vladimir Putin related to additional funding for regions of the country where low birth rates are recorded will be implemented.
