Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 13, 2012
BirthRecord.com, the new source for birth records online, shares that the U.S. birth rate fell 8 percent from 2007 to 2010 (reported by Pew Research Center). The rate also dropped 6 percent for U.S. born women and 14 percent for Internationals since 2007.
Last year’s decline in birth rates was the lowest since records started in the early 1900s.
The research conducted suggests that the economic downturn since 2007 and a drop in wealth among the Hispanic and International female population could be reasons for the drop in birth rate. The birth rate for Mexican women dropped 23 percent.
BirthRecord.com shares that birth rate is calculated as the number of births per 1,000 women from ages 15-44. This drop in birth rate has also been affected by the drop in new immigrants to the U.S.
Since the U.S. had the highest birth rate in 2007 with more than 4.3 million, the decline has been fast leading through the following years.
This interesting news marks a point in U.S. history in which legally reported population growth has declined due to low birth rate. BirthRecord.com attributes the fact of high rates of unemployment to convincing people not to have children in poor economic times.
