Default Population increase and decrease

Here's a question...

In TM 1-1 the population die off is listed as 95% following the nuclear strikes. Ok, seems a reasonable percentage with the strikes and the resulting disruption that a TEOTWAWKI scenario.

So the question is, has anybody sat down and figured out a reasonable birthrate for the aftermath? Some of the online sources have a percentage as high as 50% for a sustainable birthrate, which seems to be very unlikely. I've tried plugging various historical birthrates and can't find one that seems logical based on a total disruption of society.

So any help is greatly appreciated!
The reason that the American Army does so well in wartime, is that war is chaos, and the American Army practices chaos on a daily basis.
