Thank you for doing this. This is exactly the type of detailed analysis I was looking for. I've been tracking the birth numbers in Scotland. Their picture is not yet quite as clear.

I've written an open letter to Gov. DeSantis, asking that he mine his statewide vaccine registry to compare health outcomes in vaxxed vs. unvaxxed. He could compare birth rates, too. The feds have all this data but will continue to bury it. Meanwhile, all it takes is one courageous governor to blow this thing wide open.

My letter is here:

I'm putting $20 on stories within the next 6-9 months about how covid or "long covid" are negatively affecting birth rates.

So far, NZ birth rate for the 1Q 2022 is perfectly normal, maybe a little bit higher in fact but 4Q 2021 was a bit lower so it may balance out. NZ wasnt vaccinating then either. So it makes for a great control group - if lockdowns or pandemic fear or any other cause for the drop in birth rates we are seeing around the world then NZ should have done it too. But it didnt. That's because NZ didnt start vaccinating adults of child bearing age until late Sept through Dec 2021. So if there is a precipitous drop in NZ births come July-Sept this year, there can be only one cause.

An awful lot of would-be grandmas will have a lot of unfilled baby booties and tiny cardigans. Aching for all, and hope I'm not gonna be one.

Nobody of child bearing age should have gotten this Vaccine.

The data is undeniable that the jabs are affecting women's menstrual cycles. I'm no biologist but last I checked menstrual cycles are a key component in a woman's fertility.

There are more numbers that one could consider, though maybe they're difficult to obtain. Are there more visits to fertility clinics? More IVF, more adoptions, more sales of fertility drugs, more complementary medicine (such as acupuncture) visits for this purpose? More/same/less birth control being used? More appeals for egg donation and surrogacy?

Easier to find--more and larger online groups of women discussing trying to get pregnant, and what are they saying? More meetup and local groups for this?

We have data stretching back much further than just 25 years but most of it is still in ledgers (it goes back to the mid 1750s at least), and while this latest one surely is cause for concern, especially given the timefrae regarding the mRNA-incjetions, I'd caution anyone betting the farm on it (yet). If the trend holds however, well, then it's different.

Sorry, but the page is in swedish only. If you scroll down slightly, you'll see a graph headlined: "Födda, döda, invandringar och utvandringar per år från år 2000" meaning "Born, dead, immigrants and migrants per year from the year 2000". Hover over the lines to see numbers. As you'll se, births are up 15 000/year for 2021 compared to 2000.

You can also look at this page:

https://www.scb.se/hitta-statistik/sverige-i-siffror/manniskorna-i-sverige/doda-i-sverige/

Scroll down to a graph headlined "Spädbarnsdödlighet efter kön och per 1000 födda, per år från år 1966", it's for infant mortality by gender, per 1000 births, yarly from 1966.

Also, the Wikipedia (yeah I know but they use the same datasources) page for Sweden's population numbers throughout history has graphs that may be relevant as comparisons:

https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sveriges_historiska_befolkning

The third graph from the top on the right hand side of the page is for nativity and mortality since 1750, blue being births and orange being deaths.

Hope this helps, because while it is starting to look alarming, we know mainstream media pundits trawl the Stacks for material (witness Eugyppius recent posts being re-written by german magazine Bild without crediting him at all) and a doomsaying panic over birth rates is precisely what they could use to further neutralise valid fears and criticisms.

After what we know now, No. But especially children and young adults, im immune Suppressed a transplant recipient I read everything I could find on mRNA technology and decided I wasn't going to get it. People like me were exempt from the clinical trials and without a single bit of data the AST American society of transplant recommended it. Because Covid had a 30% fatality in peopleike me. I said no. My Nephrologist was livid with me. I knew then I was on my own if I got it I had to treat it myself hospitals were a death sentence. I got Ivermectin and Z-stack protocol.

Couple of items:

1) Try https://www.statistikdatabasen.scb.se/pxweb/en/ssd/START__BE__BE0101__BE0101G/ManadFoddDod/

This should give you monthly births by year. It is easier to download men stats after pivoting the data to get it all on one screen. Then download women stats the same way.

2) as always, data for births and deaths very close to current month are 99% delayed. Please bookmark this topic and revisit in 6 months. The birth numbers for Jan-April will have changed.

Gato — I’m always gob-smacked at how you can distill all of these numbers down into a few compelling pictures and a "story" that is almost always easily comprehensible. I read other authors/analysts who do commendable work, but I find myself working much harder, with finger on screen, tracing the charts in order to follow their explanation. You have a true gift in your ability to paint a clear picture while not withholding pertinent data.

I am also grateful for your level-headedness and balance in your assessments. The last thing we need these days is more histrionics. I don’t think it’s possible for a human to be completely unbiased, so perhaps it is your feline genome that contributes to your extra -human ability to provide as balanced of a picture as you seem able to do.

Thank you for sharing your gifts with us. You are one of the standouts of calm and sober voices that have helped to lead us through this "pandemic" minefield enabling us to make better informed decisions for ourselves and our loved ones. Words can not adequately express my gratitude 🙏

I've grown accustomed to The Cat's very bad hypothesis becoming more and more likely as data emerges.

No doubt there'll be those who rationalize this as, "well, there are too many people on the planet anyway, so this is a side benefit."

Just as with the vax mandates, the underlying attitude is: "Your body, OUR choice." Interesting that just about the only issue (abortion) where they invoke "bodily autonomy" involves the killing of another human being.

I wish they would let US see OUR data here in the new communist states of America… 🇺🇸 🔥🔥🔥

Does anyone have this data?
