This would help explain Europe’s headlong rush into almost unrestricted immigration.

According to European Union statistics, the crude birthrate — defined as births per thousand inhabitants — has declined in Germany in each of the last nine years, from 9.9 in 1997 to 8.2 in 2006.

It replaced a program that only helped lower-income families with at most 450 euros, about $630, a month. – More @ NYT
