Fig3: Birth rates, natural mortality, and infant mortality in Serbia

Mentions: The subjects older than 65 years represent 17.18% in the total population, which is higher than the average value of 15.1% in EU countries, while the share of those under age of 14 years (15.5%) was lower, compared to the EU average of 17%. The life expectancy is in a slight increase, with values of 73.65 years in Serbia and 74.46 years in Belgrade in 2008. In 2008, the proportion of women in reproductive age, in the age structure was 23.19%. Both rates showed decrease from 10.5 live births per 1000 inhabitants in 2004, to 9.4 in 2008. During the period 2004–2008, both natural population growth rate, and infant mortality rate were in decline (Fig. 3).Fig. 3
