USA's Birthrate At Lowest Point In 25 Years!!!

| Filed under: Baby Blabber

Less and less young adults are having babies these days because of the poor economy.

In fact birthrates in the US have dropped to its lowest in 25 years.

The average fertility rate of 2.1 that the US usually maintains won't rebound for at least two more years.

Why has this happened?

Here's what one researcher said:

"There's a sense of hesitancy, of 'What does better look like? How will we know?' — especially for those of prime child-bearing age. … The key word would be uncertainty, a lot of uncertainty. "

For years the U.S. has been the envy of other developed countries for its fertility birth rate. Those countries are worried that it won't have enough young people to support the aging population.

Here's what another researcher said:

"We have to think through our policies. We've got to provide better support systems for working mothers as well as fathers."

We're down. So everybody start thinking of some policies right…NOW!!!
