U.S. Birth Rate Continues To Decline

| Filed under: Baby BlabberFamily

birth rate decrease

According to new data from the Pew Research Center, the U.S. birth rate has continued to decline last year following a year of record high births in 2007.

The amount of babies being born has decreased by over 300,000 last year compared to the amount born in '07.

Experts are linking the downturn to the poor economy, which makes sense because, well, kids are expensive!

Not surprisingly, the report found the states with the highest levels of unemployment had the the biggest decrease in birth rate. North Dakota, the state with the lowest unemployment rate, was the only state in the U.S. that had a birth rate increase.
