How many will you have?

Here is a piece on the dropping US birth rate. Interestingly enough, rates in the West and Southwest fell the fastest. I wonder why that is. Any ideas?

  1. I ran across this map the other day: http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/map.economy/index.html (.) I think it probably explains most of the decrease. It'd be interesting to know if the SE came in second lowest.

  2. Wow, that is fascinating. A friend of mine on Facebook chimed in with a concurring opinion, saying that many folks, women especially, were riding out the rocky economy and delaying pregnancy. Definitely a smart financial move.
