    would it be accurate to say the growing fertility rate is caused by very strong economic growth ie. people can afford to have a larger family?

    France's population growth is probably linked to its muslims. From what I read France has one of the highest concentrations of muslims in Europe. Look at the birthrates of whites in the Eastern Bloc countries that don't have immigrants, that is probably the rate the native French are having children at. Muslims in general are known for very high birthrates, often having 6 children per woman.

    You are seeing the results of Frances immigration problem.

    France's muslims have around 8 children on average compared to less than 2 for the christians. France has been christian (catholic) for nearly 2 millenia. By the middle of this century, it wil become the first moslem nation in Europe. This "silent invasion" started in the 1970s. The government pays them to have children. The national media is not allowed to report or critique them because it's "racist". If you critique moslems in France, you are attacked and labelled a racist. You can also end up in jail.
