    Yeah..This is from the nordic council webpage.
    http://www.norden.org/pub/ovrigt/sta...k/N2008001.pdf

    Statisics over the nordic countries 2008.
    And if you go down to page 33/34 you can see a table.

    2,52 births per woman for faroe isladns and
    and 2,1 in Icleand.

    Both it´s also very high for both countries..
    The birth rate in southern europe is very low compared.

    But offcourse Faroe Isladns is not counted in always in all kind of statsitics because we are still in a union with Denmark pluss we´re pretty small. But we have lots of positive statistics

    Experts credit Iceland’s recent jump in births largely to an improved parental leave policy, which allows both mothers and fathers to take time off.

    Reykjavik — Iceland last year saw its birth rate jump to 2.14 children per woman, making it Europe’s most prolific country, largely due to improved parental leave, the national statistics agency said Thursday.

    “The main reason is the paternity leave implemented around 2000,” Statistics Iceland spokesman Gudjon Hauksson told AFP, adding that more advantageous compensation for both mothers and fathers on leave had also contributed to the increase.

    Last year, the Atlantic island nation of some 320,000 people registered 4,835 live births — an increase of 275 babies from 2007, when the birth rate stood at 2.09 children per woman, according to the statistics office.

    “Only twice in the history of Iceland have there been more children born in one year, i.e. in 1960 and 1959,” it said in a statement.

    Iceland thus tops the charts as Europe’s most prolific country, coming out ahead of European Union champion France where the birth rate last year stood at 2.02 children per woman.

    This is wonderful news, or at least to me, especially since to my knowledge Iceland is the only country to acknowledge Asatru or Odinism openly and recognize it as one of the religions of their nation. Iceland seems very dedicated to its history and interested in cultural conservation.

    Some brain-dead lawyer is the activist behind this influx. How is it that one person is allowed to subvert and destroy a whole people in this way, while anyone opposing him is slurred and slandered and imprisoned? Time for a revolution against any government that behaves in such a way.
    Yeah that is right. Maybe we should take that more serious.

    Our politicians are stupid. We need realy to replace those we have, never too late. I don´t see the adoption question as severe or anything.
    But politicians here should get a grip on themselfs. They are so un-serious and should work much more serious on important issues like edeucation, upgrading our coast guard and stuff and on lots of other stuff that i could spend hours talking about..


    ohh well back to topic Faroe Islands has pretty few non europeans living there yet compared to places such as Sweden and Denmark who has alot of immigrants unfortunatly . and it´s mostly Muslims!!!
    But thanks for noticing.
