Recession Means Fewer Babies
The ongoing recession in the USA has not just limited spending—it has also caused a decline in the number of babies born. For the second year in a row, birth rates in the USA have dropped causing many to believe that the country’s economic woes are leading to the birth of fewer babies. The connection between fewer children and the poor economy began when researchers saw that in states hit the hardest by the recession, there is the largest decline in births. Women are now giving birth to just 2.1 children each, meaning not enough children to keep the country’s population from declining.
