There has been a remarkable global decline in the number of children women are having, say researchers.

Their report found fertility rate falls meant nearly half of countries were now facing a «baby bust» – meaning there are insufficient children to maintain their population size.

The researchers said the findings were a «huge surprise».

And there would be profound consequences for societies with «more grandparents than grandchildren».

The study, published in the Lancet, followed trends in every country from 1950 to 2017.
