This can be viewed in the perspective of a citizen of an LDC. In LDCs, there are religions that cause the woman to be subservient to men. A higher birth rate could be the cause. If these  small religions were to distribute and be adhered to, there could possibly be a spike in the birth rate.

This was cool because it showed how religion compared with population. It was cool to me that with most major religions they were having a relatively close number of kids regardless of the income level.
