WANA – Iran has the lowest fertility rate among the countries of the Islamic world.
Secretary of the Center for Strategic Population Studies said:
– With the current trend, it should be said that the country’s population will not even reach 100 million people.
– The fertility rate index also shows that in 1987, our rate was 6.5 children, and this rate reached 1.6 by the end of last year (2021), which is a shocking number.
