UNITED STATES (CDC).- The fertility rate in the United States has hit a 30-year low, and caucasian Americans are not having enough babies to replace themselves, according to a new report from the federal government.
A report published by the “Centers for Disease Control and Prevention” (CDC) titled “National Vital Statistics” found that the country’s fertility rate was 16 percent below the level needed for a population to replace itself.
The estates of Utah and New Mexico are the only two states in the country with total fertility rates above replacement levels and Washington, D.C., the lowest fertility rate according to the report.
Nearly all states lack a total fertility rate that indicates their total population will increase due to births, these results demonstrate that there is variation in fertility patterns within states among ethnic groups. The total fertility rate is comprised of the expected number of lifetime births per 1,000 women, given current birth rates by age.
When broken down by race, the results show:
- Non-Hispanic white women do not have fertility rates above replacement level in any states.
- Black women had fertility rates above replacement level in 12 states.
- Hispanic women had fertility rates above replacement level in 29 states, according to the report.
The U.S. fertility rate has been dropping for years and women are generally having babies later in life, the CDC found.
