According to the report, 12,000 few births occurred in 2014 than the previous year. More importantly, there were 95,768 fewer births than deaths (the natural demographic balance), marking a peak difference greater than any year in Italy since 1917-18. Meanwhile, Italy’s median age has now risen to 44.4 years, almost 8 years higher than that of the United States.  Experts have begun expressing their concern regarding the economic and social fallout of these current demographic trends. “We risk locking ourselves into a position that could jeopardize our future,” said Alessandro Rosina, a demographer and professor at the Catholic University of Milan.
