Fewer than 400,000 births in Italy in 2021

Carlo Blangiardo, the president of national statistics agency ISTAT, told Sky Tg24 on Thursday that Italy registered “fewer than 400,000 births” in 2021.

Italy’s birth rate has been on a downward trend for many years.

Blangiardo welcomed the introduction of the new ‘assegno unico’ benefit for parents, which goes from a minimum of 50 euros a month per household per child aged up to 21, up to a maximum of 175 euros per child, with low-earning families getting more.

“I hope there are other such initiatives (aiming to reverse the trend),” added Blangiardo.
