    Muslims in Europe have a family birthrate of about 8.5.

    Contrary to what you would think (wealthier nations that can afford more kids) it is usually poor nations and for a multitude of reasons:

    - Larger families mean more bodies to share the labor in agricultural areas
    - With more chance of death and disease, larger families mean the family has a better chance of seeing children reach adulthood
    - They have few material possessions so their families tend to be what they get satisfaction from
    - Less educated and frequently more religious
    - Fewer thoughts or concerns about financial costs of children as they are already poor

    Currently only three nations exceed seven per household. Niger (7.19), Guinea-Bissau (7.07) and Afghanistan (7.07).

    If they had real households instead of orphans, I would say India. But I googled it and it is the African nations. My god, they can't feed what they have now...they have an average of 4 children per household and growing!

    highest population growth is noted in the central regions of Africa and India/Bangladesh as of middle America. This even the average death rates of infants is over proportional high. So you can assume that you get the biggest families in the named regions.

    Who knows ~ didn't do my research on this one. Perhaps India or Africa.
  • Deactivated 2011/05/16 16:15:45
    I actually don't know but I would expect Africa.

    Africa is a continent. The question asks for a country.
