US Birthrate Lowest in 32 Years

US Birthrate Lowest in 32 Years America's birthrate is falling rapidly.

According to the National Center for Health Statistics at the CDC, last year the number of births was the lowest in three decades.

Although the birthrate dropped for women younger than 35, it's on the rise for women in their late 30s and early 40s.

The teen birthrate is also down, dropping by 7% for teenagers aged 15 to 19.

In 2017, the total U.S. fertility rate was 1,765.5 per 1,000 women.

The rate is below "replacement level," which is 2,100 births per 1,000 women.

There has also been an increase in preterm birth and cesarean births, likely due to more women having babies later in life.
