The number of children being born in Poland has risen dramatically since 2008.
While in 2005 only 364,000 children were born in Poland, three years later the number exceeded 400,000. A birth rate has increased over the last years mainly because people who were born during a population explosion in 1980s started setting up families themselves, say demographers. However, a sudden growth of birth rate in 2009 indicates that a present baby boom is not just a reflection of 1980s generation reaching adulthood but a steady demographic trend.
In spite of baby boom in Poland, though, the country has reported the lowest birth rate in the European Union, shows Eurostat.
