The Complete Collapse of fertility in the United States

Sharing is Caring!

The general fertility rate in the United States decreased by 3% from 2022, reaching a historic low. This marks the second consecutive year of decline, following a brief 1% increase from 2020 to 2021. From 2014 to 2020, the rate consistently decreased by 2% annually.

These statistics and others from provisional 2023 birth data were released by CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
