Reduction of future generations. Emigration and birth rate in Bacău and Vaslui counties
Keywords:population, emigration, birth rate, Bacău and Vaslui counties
The approach of this article is to bring forward the long-term consequences visible in two counties from East Romania named Bacău and Vaslui, counties very different in terms of development, due to declining birth rate, a phenomenon triggered by over two decades, through the impact of emigration, but also as a mentality transformation of a society. Thereby, those two counties suffer a double loss of young population: from one side because of the young people that choose to emigrate and from the other side because of decreasing birth rate given that young people leave behind these counties, and mainly poor rural areas, choosing to live abroad. Analysing in a comparative way these two elements, migration and natality, with serious implications in increasing or decreasing the population of the administrative areas of our counties, we reduce the syncope of a descriptive analysis by using collected data outlined through cartographic method.
