Interesting. It seems that the same was the case in Poland of 15th - 16th centuries.
Rich peasants and nobles had more surviving offspring than average peasants (among the latter, growth was only slightly above replacement rate):
From page 21 (number of sons per father who lived to their adulthood):
Among average peasants, there was only 1,1 - 1,5 adult sons per father.
I guess poor peasants had less than 1,0 sons who lived to their adulthood per father (i.e., below-replacement fertility).
^ Note that English graph shows children per family (couple), while Polish graph shows sons per father.
So in case of English graph replacement fertility is 2,1 while in case of Polish graph it is 1,05.
4 surviving children in English graph, is equivalent to 2 sons living to adulthood in Polish graph.
only the russian one does.
I'm sure you know this, but it's a stereotype that American parents act like helicopters over their children. Maybe Canadian ones as well.
"Age-standardised disability-adjusted life year (DALY) rates from Alzheimer and other dementias by country (per 100,000 inhabitants)." Lightest yellow is <100, darkest red is >300.
So Finland is the Zero World, it seems.
At least they don't have to deal with being Polish.
Yes. Why is Finland so high?
It seems correlated to how old people get. Japan is known fo old age and Germany is known for sooner deaths than France, Italy or Spain. So yep the tag-line "first world problems" seems very relevant.
It is age-correlated. But it doesn't seem to be a consequence of aging itself.
A recent uptick in tackiness.

What sanctions does the EU impose on the US?
Maybe it means death penalty related materials.
Don't some countries in the EU have a ban on GMO?
The EU and USA have have been in an on and off trade war for decades, sometimes with the WTO as their battlefields. The sanctions are mostly import tariffs, and the only export ban I am aware of concerns drugs used in executions.
Dunno how accurate this is: http://sanctionswiki.org/USA
I don't think tariffs count as sanctions. Otherwise there would be sanctions on basically every country.
