Fertility of Women in the United States and the Two County Region

The Census Bureau has released a new report on fertility of women in the United States. The report highlights three trends:
  • Births to adolescents continues to decline;
  • More than one in five women who gave birth in the last 12 months reported at the time of the birth that they were living in someone else's home; and
  • While the majority of first births occur in marriages (as they have for decades), first births to young mothers is more likely to occur in a cohabitation relationship than a married one.
