Polish Government Incentivizes Families to Increase Birth Rates

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.4

Poland plans to implement the Family Welfare Capital program in 2022, where the government would give parents $2,947 for each child after their firstborn between the ages of 12 and 36 months. The average number of children born per woman in Poland has fallen far below the replacement level of 2.1 to 1.44. The new plan is to increase the birth rate and escape the low fertility trap rather than rely on immigration to boost the population.
