The Ministry of health of Ukraine reported that the number of elderly people in the country exceeds the number of young population. And this is the case that in developed countries, this phenomenon is observed because of the increased longevity of the elderly, and in Ukraine it is due to the fact that the birth rate decreases. Today, in most families the norm is to have one child. The reasons for this phenomenon are many, starting from problems of an economic nature, to reproductive problems in both men and women.
The Eastern part of Ukraine is on the degree of fertility to depression, as there is recorded the lowest number of births. The Central and Northern part of the country are demographically old, and the birth rate in these regions is similar to the average for Ukraine.
Most high fertility rates observed in Western Ukraine.
