Yay! America Still Winning Its War on Babies

Continuing their fight against baby Americans, big Americans have made great advancements in the past year.

Breitbart reports:

The birth rate in the United States took another dip last year, falling from 63.2 births per 1,000 women 15 to 44 years old in 2011 to 63.0 births in 2012. The data was compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The U.S. birth rate, which was 69.3 per 1,000 women in 2007, has declined for five consecutive years, and is now at its lowest ebb since the government started keeping the statistics in 1909.

University of New Hampshire demographer Kenneth Johnson, noting that the lowered birth rate can hurt the economy, said, "If there are fewer younger people in the United States, there may be a shortage of young workers to enter the labor force in 18 to 20 years. A downturn in the birth rate affects the whole economy."

Last year, the CDC stated that the replacement rate in the U.S. was 1.88; it takes a rate of 2.1 children per woman for a generation to maintain itself into the next generation.

The Great Recession that started in 2007-2008 triggered a decline in the birth rate, as high unemployment discouraged young people from having children. In a Pew Research Center study, roughly 22% of 18-to-34-year-olds admitted they were waiting for the economy to improve before they had children. Pew also stated that in 2012, 36% of those aged 18 to 31 still lived at home with their parents.
We're officially becoming Europe folks.

Nobody seems to get that there has to be somebody to come behind in the work force. After all SOMEBODY has to pay for those Obamaphones, and when you and I are gone what are they going to do?

First of all, we have been Europe before Europe was. We use the dollar which has protected the deception of the past two presidents and fed chairmen who think debt and money printing should replace baseball as our national pastime.

Second, why do you think we import cheap labor while our own people go unemployed. Why? Because businesses a living in a world where we pretend inflation isn't happening so we can justify insane debt. So they need cheap labor because no one can afford the product unless its cheap. That why Walmart does so well....oh and because foreigners will accept less pay, part time and no benefits. Yea,l that won't come back to haunt us.

Interesting that this data comes from the CDC as if pregnancy is a disease.

@elm: Or maybe the CDC just keeps all our medical stats. They compile our heights and weights, too, is height a disease?

Agencies undergo "mission creep", the first aircraft in the US military were maintained by the Army's Signal Corps.
