Yes. But I was speaking just of comparative trends, and even though I cannot
point to some source from the top of my head, I believe to remember that
such rates are both improved in comparison with the past, and better in
comparison with other areas. Or at least their acceleration.

fight demographic decline, would require additional imports of human cattle,
making in the process permanent the lack of "integration" thereof and the
externalisation of the involved social costs by the businesses possibly
employing them.
