Babys Are(n’t) Us….U.S. Birthrate Hits Record Low

Posted By on November 30, 2012

Pretty stunning news…..and what does this mean, it means slow or no growth in the economy for many many years.  Oh, and the chart below explains how much government assistance the baby boomers are reliant on, and it becomes worse with the working population slowing, not growing. 

The U.S. birthrate fell to a record low last year, coming in at its lowest level since statistics began being collected in 1920. 

The birthrate was 63.2 babies per 1,000 women of childbearing age in 2011. That number is about half what the birth rate was during the Baby Boom, when the rate was 122.7 per 1,000 women.

While the 2011 rate is based on a preliminary set of statistics that will be finalized sometime next year, the early numbers continue a trend that has been playing out for some time. Between 2007 and 2010, the birth rate also fell, from 69.3 per 1,000 women to 64 per 1,000.
