USA birth rate hit 30-year low in 2017 — CDC

National Report On Birth Rates Shows Why The US Needs Immigration

"It's hard to say yet whether it marks a fundamental change or it's just a blip, University of Pennsylvania demographer Hans-Peter Kohler told the AP, in reference to the slight decline in birth rates for women in their 30s".

It shows that the overall birth rate in the USA is down 2 percent on the previous year, making it the lowest on record since 1987.

The CDC report was released online May 17 in a National Vital Statistics System Rapid Release. By comparison, there were about 21 births per 1,000 residents in 1990.

"The decline in the rate from 2016 to 2017 was the largest single-year decline since 2010", the CDC said.

This is thought to be down to a number of different factors.

The numbers seem to correspond with what the Census Bureau and others have been predicting for years: that America's population growth will increasingly depend on immigrants, after decades in which the US enjoyed a relatively high fertility rate when compared to other developed countries.

About 84 percent of 36-year-old California women lived with an own child in 1980.

According to an AP report, experts say the falling birth rate may be due to millennials' changing attitudes about motherhood-essentially, they're more inclined to put it off and have fewer kids-as well as increased use of long-term contraception techniques. By 2016, that figure had dropped to 29 percent.

The only age group that saw a rise in birth rates: Women in their early 40s. For teenagers aged 15 to 19 years, the birth rate decreased 7 percent in 2017 to 18.8 births per 1,000 women, with decreases in the rates for younger and older teenagers (15 to 17 and 18 to 19, respectively). But he added that his birthing unit, and others that he's been in contact with, have seen an overall decline in births recently. There were more preterm births for the third consecutive year, increasing to close to 10 percent of births in 2017, the CDC reported.

The CDC also tallied births by race and cultural data (but it doesn't yet have the data to compare those figures to the overall populations).
