Birth rate in Nikolaevka areas grows. As reports management of health protection of the Nikolaev regional state administration, for the first quarter 2009 3 189 children were born in areas. From them 25 kids died, without having lived and one year. Nevertheless, these figures more, than are optimistical. After all for the same period of last year 31 kids at this age died.
Nevertheless, low birth rate and high mortality led to that many schools not only in area, but also in the city of Nikolaev risk to become empty. So, at school No. 9 there will be no graduates neither through six, nor in 12 years. Last year only ten first graders came to this school. Class didn't gather, and children distributed in the next schools.
The only exit from the created situation - increase in indicators of birth rate.
