A similar effect is to be noted with regard to the age structure. A decline in fertility will only provide a major shift between the numerical importance of the active and inactive population groups after fifteen to twenty years. In the three countries mentioned the dependency burden will, in about ten years' time, still be about twice as large as in Japan, where the decline in fertility has been effective over a nurober ofyears. In discussing the prospective trends in world population growth the most crucial and difficult question remains: How soon and how rapidly can a decline in fertility be brought about in the developing countries?

Apart from Japan, where a spectacular fertility decline has taken place since the last war, there are few examples of any major decline in birth rate, although a declining trend seems to be on the way in isolated cases such as Puerto Rico, Taiwan and Malaya. On the other hand, some cases might be cited which indicate a rise in birth rates in recent years, particularly in the Caribbean and Central American regions, although in some of these countries it may be due rather to an improvement in the recorded statistics than to a real increase.
