Birth rates are on the decline as young people question whether or not they want to have children in an uncertain future.

Dec 30 2021

Birth rates are on the decline as young people question whether or not they want to have children in an uncertain future. YPulse’s recent Millennial parenting data found that the number of Millennials who say they want to have kids in the future dropped from last year. And according to Population Reference Bureau data, the global birth rate has been on the decline since 1950. In 2021, the global fertility rate is 2.3 births per woman compared to 3.2 in 1990. A Pew Research Center survey found that a growing percentage of childless adults in the U.S. ages 18-49-years-old plan to remain that way. There’s many reasons why: Young adults are worried about the lack of support and are scared of the future, from the ongoing pandemic and political and civil unrest, financial instability, rising house costs, and the inevitable climate crisis. One in 10 non-retired Americans say their finances may never recover from the pandemic, and of course, there’s the fact that the global unemployment rate hasn’t rebounded across all industries and levels just yet.
