Since 1970, statistics about U.S. birth rates and other interesting data have been tracked on a regular basis to determine various trends. Among one of the most noticeable trends is the number of births per 1,000 people has declined gradually. Another trend is the age of the parents has been slowly increasing since 1970.
Part of the reason for these trends is because people are waiting longer to start a family and deciding to have fewer children overall. Aside from families being a little smaller than they were in 1970, there are still over seven babies born every minute of every single day!
Some women even give birth to twins, triplets, quadruplets, and quintuplets or more than five babies!
