As already mentioned above, considerable variations in fertility rates are apparent at Member State level (see Map 1 below): France (at 1.86) had the highest total fertility rate in 2019, while Malta had the lowest (at 1.14). Other Member States with relatively high fertility rates included Romania (1.77, ascending trend), as well as Sweden and Ireland (both 1.71, descending trend). At the other end of the scale, with Malta, were Spain (1.23, decreasing), Italy (1.27, decreasing) and Cyprus (1.33, increasing).
