'Remarkable' decline in fertility rates

'Remarkable' decline in fertility rates There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of children women are having, say researchers.

The researchers said the findings were a "huge surprise".

And there would be profound consequences for societies with "more grandparents than grandchildren". BBC News
