UNITED STATES, April 6, 2017 (Tuckerman Times): Hindus will witness a "dramatic" drop-off in births between 2055 and 2060 due to declining fertility in India, which is home to 94 per cent of the community's global population, according to a new Pew research. The Pew Research Centre study also said that the number of babies born to Muslim women is expected to overtake those born to Christians world-wide within two decades, making Islam the world's largest religion by 2075.

By contrast, the total number of births is projected to decline steadily between 2015 and 2060 for all other major religious groups, said the study, which was released yesterday. "The drop-off in births will be especially dramatic for Hindus - who are expected to see 33 million fewer births between 2055 and 2060 than between 2010 and 2015 - due in large part to declining fertility in India, which is home to 94 per cent of the global Hindu population as of 2015," according to the study titled "The Changing Global Religious Landscape."
