Last week Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare reported the 2014 birth rate. According to it, the nation-wide total fertility rate (birth rate) was 1.42. It dropped 0.1 point from 2013.

The total fertility rate of a population is the average number of children that would be born to a woman over her lifetime if:
      She was to experience the exact current age-specific fertility rates through her lifetime, and
      She was to survive from birth through the end of her reproductive life. (wikipedia)
