South Korea’s Total Fertility Rate Feared to Fall Below 1 in 2018

South Korea’s total fertility rate is likely to hit a record low this year, a presidential committee warned Thursday, prompting the government to take a series of steps to boost the country’s chronically low birthrate. The total fertility rate — the average number of children a woman bears in her lifetime — is expected to fall below 1.0 in 2018, down from 1.05 a year earlier, said the Presidential Committee on Aging Society and Population Policy.
