Fertility Patterns in the U.S.
This program was part of C-SPAN’s regular Friday “America by the Numbers” series.
Stephanie Ventura and Mark Mather talked about a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics report on changes and trends in childbearing and fertility patterns in the U.S. They discussed the declining birth rate overall, a record-low teen birth rate, and delayed childbearing, and the policy implications of these trends on the workplace, immigration, entitlement revenues, and health care. They responded to telephone calls and electronic communications.
