Childbirths in Poland down by 5.9% in H1 2019: stats office

25.07.2019 08:30
Around 182,000 babies were born in Poland in the first half of this year, a decrease of 5.9 percent from the same period last year, the country’s Central Statistical Office (GUS) has said.

Commenting on the figures, sociologist Prof. Piotr Szukalski from the University of Łódź said: “This is a major dip in numbers.”

He added that it appeared that the ruling conservatives' 500-plus child benefit programme has ceased to influence the procreation decisions of Poles.

Szukalski said: “It may be expected that 370,000 to 375,000 children will be born over the entire year.”

If this forecast proves true, it will be the smallest number of births in four years, the Dziennik Gazeta Prawna newspaper reported.

Poland's demographic situation would improve if around 580,000 babies were born in the country every year, or 210 to 215 per 100 women of reproductive age, according to the paper.
