Look at the main trends in the birth and fatality rates in the UK since early 1900s
As the population of a nation increases, you will have certain factors affecting the folks of that country; the labor and birth rate, plus the death level are a pair of the major demographic trends. Seeing that 1900 great britain has changed greatly, as has the demography with the country.
The Birth level - the amount of live births per a thousand of the population per year at first was reasonably high due to the fact that child work was legal in Victorian England, and that because of the danger of loss of life in having a baby due to infection ect. The greater children you conceived, the larger the chance that you would get a young child this is a greater in the TMF (total fraternity rate). In the early 1900's the labor and birth rate was 28. 7 births every 1000. Because the start of the 20th century the birth charge has been in long term decline; in 2007 the birthrate was only twelve. 7.
The fall in labor and birth rate can be explained by many reasons, one is that due to women's rights, the position of women offers greatly elevated, meaning that the stereotype stating that female must take care of the house and children ect is shunned; as some females may not wish children due to increased educational opportunities plus the fact that if perhaps they go in maternity keep they are at risk of losing all their job - or using a large deductions of salary.
If woman get pregnant accidently, it is now less difficult and more socially acceptable to get access to abortions, and contraception - which means that woman have more control of their fertility.
The fall in the birth level is also because of the decline inside the infant mortality rate (IMR), the IMR measures the quantity of infants who have die just before their first birthday, per 1000 babies born per year. A dropping IMR means a fall in the birth level because more children are surviving, so parents to not have to try again.
Due to the prohibit of child labour, many people have had a smaller amount children, because the children no longer benefit them...
