That's quite a surprise! Still, as I was reading the article, I wondered what the data looked like among different groups....but the article had that covered:

Still, it's not just the educated and affluent who have seen the fertility rate plunge — demographers say they see it among the poor, too, and in rural as well as urban areas.

It'll be interesting to see how their society evolves with this and I'm especially interested to see what happens with the big city slums. Will they gradually "upgrade", shrink.... something else? What about crime? Gotta keep watching....
