That's very good.

Even if not immigrants offsprings boost up the fertility rate.


However, countries with the highest scores (including Australia and Scandinavia) have an average fertility rate of 1.89—not quite the replacement level, but close enough that small levels of migration can sustain the same population.

Maybe the population not only sustaining, but changing.
