Seoul, AFP. Birth rate has reached an all-time low in South Korea. Last year, about three lakh children were born in a country with a population of 5.1 crore. According to the data released on Wednesday, the birth rate in 2019 was 7.3 percent less than the previous year and a total of three lakh three thousand one hundred children were born in the country.

Average age of the country is 62 years

The birth rate in South Korea has been less than one in the last two years. To keep the country's population stable, the infant birth rate is required to be at least 2.1. It is feared that if this is the case in this country with an average age of 62 years, then within the next 50 years, the population will be reduced by four crore.

The government has spent more than $ 148 billion (about Rs 10,000 billion) since 2006 to increase the birth rate. But to avoid the huge expense of raising children, many women in the country do not want to become mothers.
