A demographic crisis is a situation where the population of a territory, or the world, is not sustainable. One kind of demographic crisis is overpopulation.

Demographic crunch[edit]

Many developed countries have birth rates too low to sustain their own population. Russia in the 1990s, Germany and Japan are notable examples.

Minority population bomb[edit]

In many countries, minorities have higher fertility rates than majorities. This is the case in the United States and Israel.

This phenomenon can be cited in a racist context, to express minority population growth as a threat. Especially population growth among Muslims in Europe has been cited as a threat against Western culture .
