Nevertheless, the average family size is shrinking. 

Jan 19 2023

Nevertheless, the average family size is shrinking. According to recent research from the National Center for Health Statistics, the “overall fertility rate in the U.S. declined from 2015 to 2020, additional NCHS data shows, reaching a low of fewer than 6 births per 100 women ages 15 to 44.” Sociologists attribute this to a few factors: contraception is more reliable now, people are marrying later in life (most births in the U.S. still happen within marriage), and medically assisted reproduction processes like in vitro are helping families have children when they’re older and feel more prepared. For a growing number of Millennials in this time however, finances play a major role in their childbearing decisions (as said above). YPulse data shows that about a quarter of Gen Z and Millennials say they’re not currently interested in having children, but maybe in the future.
