"In 1990 women around the world gave birth to 3.3 children on average, the report says." (from the BBC)

That's not humanly possible... unless quadruplets are far more common than I thought...

Oh...on average

Still, I agree. If it had been 100/200 years earlier....

Well, the "women around the world" is vague enough, that perhaps we are dealing with an international triplet/quadruplet birthing cartel. One wouldn't expect the same cartel to fare well in production in 1991, however.

Keeping up that kind of rate of production two years running seems like an unlikely expectation. The article didn't go into the production rate for any other year, however.
