It seems that Australian women are reaching the edge of an arena that will have women bended more towards their careers and losing their childbearing years.
The above are the facts that new figures are revealing. Yes, researchers recently detailed their gathered data and confirmed that Australian women are today producing fewer than two children on an average. The authorities are concerned with the released figures because it is for the first time in recorded history that such calculations have come out.
Experts are explaining that today Australian women are more ambitious and wanting to pursue careers first rather than starting planning their family. Delay in planning their first child has become common for the women in the country, which is further resulting in more women findings themselves extra mature to plan their second child and building their families.
With these details, experts reveal that Australian women are almost reaching the end of their fertile years and thus they are having fewer than two children.
Regarding the new figures, Dr. Genevieve Heard, a research fellow at Monash University with extensive experience in the Demography Section of the Australian Bureau of Statistics, told The Australian that "New data from last year's census shows that women aged 40-44 years in 2011 were nearing the end of their reproductive years with 1.99 children each."
