The UN report indicated that nothing so catastrophic is needed to level the population off but that expected trends in birth and death ity" and themselves eventually would do the trick, producing the family planning advocates" long-for "zero population growth It repeated the experts" 1968 projections that world popu- lation would hit over four billion in 1975 and 6 5 billion in the year 2000 and extended those projections into the next century In making the calculations, the report said "it was assumed that mortality would decrease everywhere to reach, sooner or later, an expectation of life at birth of 76 years, and then stabilize "Fertility was assumed to decrease, sooner in some regions and later in others, until a level is reached assuring exact replacement of the population in the long run West winds MOSCOW
