We discuss the causes, consequences, and everything related to the stagnation of France's population growth during the XIX century.

>France was historically the largest nation of Europe. During the Middle Ages more than one quarter of Europe's population was French; during the 17th century it was still one fifth.

>Starting around 1800, the historical evolution of the population in France has been extremely atypical in the Western World. Unlike the rest of Europe, there was no strong population growth in France in the 19th century and first half of the 20th century. The birth rate in France diminished much earlier than in the rest of Europe.

>The French population only grew by 8.6% between 1871 and 1911, while Germany's grew by 60% and Britain's by 54%.

>If the population of France had grown between 1815 and 2000 at the same rate as that of Germany during the same time period, France's population would have been 110 million in 2000; If France's population had grown at the same rate as that of England and Wales, France's population could have been as much as 150 million in 2000. Should one start the comparison at the time of King Louis XIV, then France would now have approximately the same population as the United States.

Maybe they started to approach the limit of how much population France could actually support?

His influence was pretty strong among french priests, rural population pretty much followed what their local church told them to do. Plus they did not think industrial revolution would allow them to feed a big family. Thus why they had so much italian, belgian, polish immigration in that century

300 million frogs crammed in a territory smaller than Texas?
All of France would be just one big Metropolitan region.

There are 127 million Japanese people living in a country smaller than that and where 75% of the land is forest. Much of the rest of it is farmland. You can fit a lot of people in a small space.
