    Hello!

    Both world wars and the Great Depression were periods where several countries experienced a decline in the birth rate (1914-1945).

    From 1950 to 1965, these same countries had a marked increase in the number of births.

    Several factors explain this ;

    -The men were back from the war in Europe;

    -Women had more children on average, compared to the previous periods mentioned above.

    -People got married earlier.

    -Several marriages that were delayed because of the difficult times finally happened in 1945.

    -There was a drop in infant mortality.
