    The much higher fertility rate is balanced by a much higher mortality rate compared to the United States.  This trend is similar across various comparisons of developed to developing nations, with developed nations trending toward lower fertility rates, aging populations, and in some cases negative population growth.  The opposite is true in developing nations where there is often high birth rates, high mortality rates, younger populations and high positive population growth.
