Sunday, August 29, 2010 U.S. Birth Rate Drops

August 29, 2010 (2:18)

The U.S. birth rate dropped 2.6 percent from 2008 to 2009, and some analysts suspect people’s uncertain financial futures are at fault. Other factor may also be at paly: immigration is down and some women are delaying having families.

Something needs to be done to fire up the middle class to have more kids. Apparently this trend started after 9/11. Birth rates were also down during the Great Depression.
