The number of Poles deciding to have the second and the third child is on the rise, but the number deciding to have the first child is dropping, Central Statistics Office (GUS) data show.

Data show that the number of women having one child dropped to 47.4% in 2014 from 51.1% in 2006.

The percentage of those who choose to have two children increased to 37.5% from 32.7% and those who decide on the third child grew to 10.5% from 9.9% in 2010.

If the fertility patterns settle at the level recorded in 2008, the number of women not having a child at all may exceed 30% in the years to come, up from 17% at present and from 8% among women born shortly after the World War II.
