Description

"Women without children are not anomalies, the latest census data shows. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey, in 2014, 47.6 percent of women between age 15 and 44 had never had children, up from 46.5 percent in 2012. This represents the highest percentage of childless women since the bureau started tracking that data in 1976. Time reported that this pattern is particularly pronounced for women between 25 and 29 -- 49.6 percent of women in that age group don't have kids. Unsurprisingly, after age 30 those numbers drop and more women become moms. The survey found that 28.9 percent of women ages 30-34 are childfree. The census data is backed up by data from the National Center for Health Statistics. According to a recent report, in 2013 there were just 62.9 births for every 1,000 women between the ages of 15 and 44 in the U.S. -- an all-time low. These numbers confirm what most childfree women already know: greater numbers of women are waiting longer to have children, or not having children at all."
