US fertility rate hits historic low, data shows


Donna Strobino was quoted in a Fox News article saying that, in the United States, the number of women giving birth has reached a historic low. Women in their 20s are having fewer babies than before, yet while women in their 30s and 40s are increasingly having babies, this is not enough to offset the overall birthrate decline. The birthrate compared to last year has fallen by 1%, equating 62 births/1000 women aged 15 to 44.
