Baby Bust

In 2019, US live births totaled 3,745,540, down 1% from 2018, declining for the fifth year in a row.  They are at a 35-year low despite good economic growth during that period. Birthrates declined for females under 34, were flat for those aged 35-39, and were up slightly for those 40-44. Despite being at home more than usual of late, a baby boomlet is not expected; recessions depress birth rates.
