While the phenomenon is not overly impressive when observed year by year, its cumulative effect will be important. In the areas where the increase was greatest: Federal Capital, Mendoza, Buenos Aires, Cordoba, its effects will be all the more notable because these include almost all the areas that make up the lower part of the range of variation of fertility in the country. The case of the Capital, where the increase meant moving from a gross reproduction ratio below I to one above that value, is the most remarkable.


Conclusions

We have surveyed the process of fertility decline in Argentina, with the intention of providing a descriptive overview.
