“Cape Town residents certainly aren’t afraid to get intimate, with the highest birth rates rate of all cities on the list of 20 per 1,000 inhabitants. SA’s mortality rate is 9.3 deaths per 1,000 people, meaning that the birth rate is more than double the mortality rate there,” the study found.

“Sydney comes in third in this factor with 12 births per 1,000 population as of 2019, which translates to 1.58 births per woman. Similar to Istanbul, the birth rate has dropped so much in recent years that the population has started to shrink.”
