Poland is facing a deepening demographic crisis as the fertility rate continues to decline. The Total Fertility Rate (TFR) in 2022 is the lowest in nine years, indicating that Poles are having fewer children each year. The average age of women at the birth of their first child has also increased significantly. When comparing the number of births to the number of deaths, the birth rate is declining faster than anticipated, while the COVID-19 pandemic has led to an excess of deaths.

Despite government initiatives such as the 500 Plus program, Poland is experiencing population decline, highlighting the challenges in addressing the demographic problem.
