In developed nations this creates a challenge as replacement levels of fertility are not maintained, leading to shortages of labor supply and a negative impact on productivity and economic growth. In Third World countries, declining fertility rates are still high but have seen dramatic improvement over the past few decades. As Wattenberg (1998) reports, over the past three decades the average fertility rate of women in Third World countries has declined with record-breaking speed from 6.2 to 3.0.
