families had triplet babies.
19 thousand 684 children were born in Kazan in 2019. Of these, 10 thousand 194 are
girls (52%), and 9 thousand 490 boys (48%), R.Minnullina said. “Now there are
fewer reproductive age people - both men and women. In Kazan, the falling of
birth rates has been observed since 2017 – she said. – At the same time, among the
cities with million plus population in the Volga Federal district, our city remains
a high birth rate”.
“It is good
that the number of families with second and subsequent children is growing in
Kazan. If 10 years ago families basically had one child, now the number of
families in which second, third, and fourth children are born is constantly
growing – commented the mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin. – This is a very positive
demographic indicator for us. And the decline in the number of children born is
an objective consequence of the fact that parents are representatives of the
generation of the 90s. We have this figure in the whole country. But the
decline is not crucial”.
