The reasons for the baby boom are:
1. Earlier marriages and fewer women using contraceptives may also point to increased conservatism
2. Decline in support and implementation of family planning and use of contraceptives
Population growth rates fell from 3.5 percent in the 1970s to 1.7 percent in the mid-2000s. By 2008, population growth rate increased and reached 2.11 percent in 2011. From 2009 and 2014, the desired number of children among young couples increased from 2.5 to 3, while contraceptive usage dropped.
Egypt’s population is a problem for Europe and the world as well.
International agencies and the Egyptian government are trying to launch new campaigns for family planning.
