Report - America just had its lowest number of births in 32 years
quote:

America's fertility rate and the number of births nationwide are continuing to decline.

The number of births for the United States last year dropped to its lowest in about three decades, according to provisional data in a new report from the National Center for Health Statistics at the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"Even though the number of births we've seen in 2018 is the lowest that we've seen in 32 years, the total fertility rate is at a record low," said Brady Hamilton, a natality expert at the center and first author of the report.


quote:

The provisional data -- which will be finalized later in the year -- showed that the total fertility rate for the United States last year was 1,728 births per 1,000 women, a decrease of 2% from 2017 and a record low for the nation.

While birth rate compares the average number of births during a year per 1,000 people in a population, total fertility rate is defined as the expected number of births that a group of 1,000 women would have in their lifetimes, according to what birth rates were by age for that year.

The total fertility rate in 2018 was below what is considered the level needed for a population to replace itself: 2,100 births per 1,000 women, according to the report.

Can't have sex when you don't leave your parents house.

Does this number take abortions into consideration?

It’s too expensive for many young people to have kids, and that’s not even taking into account qualms people might have about sending them off to the local shooting gallery

Nah, people just don't want to sacrifice a lifestyle for kids. They don't have to be expensive.

Ummm. This is bad news

What’s going to happen when the size of workforce contributing to old age social insurance is smaller than the old population?

Please look at Japan

If American women don’t up their birth rate to 2.1, we will have to rely on Moslem immigrants

The most uneducated among us are breeding at an unsustainable clip while the rest of work our asses off to pay for it. Welfare needs to end now!

Because if the study doesn't, then it's not accurate.

Milano's abstinence protest is working? Or, is it because it's now easier for women to get abortions?

Or the real reason is younger people are now waiting longer to have kids? And there aren't as many people out there having 5+ kids like prior generations.
