Uh huh and I suggested that birth rates aren't very indicative of population growth that supports economic stability, which is often the first thing people worry about when birth rates fall, and that total births relates to population growth better than fertility rates because it doesn't take the number of mothers giving birth into account.
Like I know the article is about birth rates. I can read the words "birth" and "rate" and understand that they are next to each other and refer to a single concept. I was just saying that the concept isn't the best indicator of population level trends. I don't know why you're pointing out that the article is about the topic in its title.
