1 in 25 Danes born through IVF

The latest European statistics show that 3.9% of all births in Denmark came as a result of IVF — probably the highest proportion in the world. The next highest was Slovenia, with 3.2%, but in all the Nordic countries of Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, more than 2% of births are IVF births. Since the most recent figures date from 2001, the current levels are sure to be higher.
