English reformers hoped to remake the Irish in their own image, thus ending Ireland's cycle of poverty and misfortune in an era when poverty was thought to be caused by bad moral character. In 2012 the average total fertility rate (TFR) across the UK was 1.92 children per woman. [334] While a rising birth rate is contributing to current population growth, it remains considerably below the 'baby boom' peak of 2.95 children per woman in 1964, [335] below the replacement rate of 2.1, but higher than the 2001 record low of 1.63. [334] In 2012, Scotland had the lowest TFR at only 1.67, followed by Wales at 1.88, England at 1.94, and Northern Ireland at 2.03. [334] In 2011, 47.3% of births in the UK were to unmarried women. [336] A government figure estimated that there are 3.6 million homosexual people in Britain comprising 6% of the population.
