1. The latest figures on fertility in Australia

From a short article, entitled "Too poor for kids", on page nine of yesterday's edition of the Sydney Daily Telegraph (the following excerpt is my transcript):

The nation's fertility rate dropped in 2009 to 1.9 babies per reproductive woman.
This figure was down from 1.96 in 2008 as all states and territories except Queensland saw a fall in birth rates.

Here are some extracts from an Australian Bureau of Statistics media release of November 3 entitled "Fertility rates decline in 2009":

After increasing in recent years, fertility rates in Australia declined slightly in 2009, according to figures released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

In 2009, Australia's total fertility rate was 1.90 babies per woman, a small decrease from 1.96 babies per woman in 2008 and 1.92 babies per woman in 2007.

Fertility rates for all states and territories decreased in 2009, except for Queensland.

Tasmania had the highest fertility rate, with 2.18 babies per woman, while the Australian Capital Territory had the lowest at 1.74.

Women in Tasmania were also having their children at younger ages than women in the rest of Australia; with fertility rates highest for women aged 25-29 years. For the rest of Australia, fertility rates were highest for women aged 30-34 years.

The median age of all mothers for births registered in 2009 was 30.6 years, while the median age of fathers was 33.0 years, both slightly younger than in recent years.

A total of 295,700 births were registered in Australia in 2009. ...

[...] Media notes:

  • The total fertility rate represents the average number of babies that a woman could expect to bear during her reproductive lifetime if current fertility rates continue.


2. "Eugenics 'rises from Nazi tomb' claims Victorian Bishop Peter Elliott"

I would be interested to read more of the transcript of His Lordship's sermon (I presume it was a sermon?), but a Google search of the keywords "Peter Elliott" and "eugenics" and "Nazi tomb" just came up with the same article from The Australian.
