  12. Add the following labels to your Ageing population pyramid

  13. What about the UK? Have a look at this... And this...

  15. Fact or Opinion? • Europe's population is, right now, peaking, after more than six centuries of continuous growth. • With each generation reproducing only half its number, this looks like the start of a ­continent-wide collapse in numbers. Some predict wipeout by 2100. • Half a century ago, Europe was basking in a postwar baby boom, with 2.8 babies per woman in Britain, 2.9 in France, and 3.2 in the Netherlands. • Demographers assumed that fertility would settle down at about the level required to maintain the population – slightly more than two babies per woman. • According to the World bank Italy has a fertility rate of 1.34 births per woman, Germany 1.39, Poland 1.31 and the UK 1.9. • Europe is living on borrowed time. It already badly needs foreign hands to keep its societies and economies functioning • Demographer Peter McDonald calculates that if Italy gets stuck with recent fertility levels, and fails to top up with foreign migrants, it will lose 86% of its population by the end of the century, falling to 8 million compared with today's 56 million. Spain will lose 85%, Germany 83% and Greece 74%.
