CWN Editor's Note: The US fertility rate reached an all-time low in 2020. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control indicate that the average woman now bears 1.6375 children in her lifetime: far below the “replacement level” figure of 2.1 children. The fertility rate for 2020 was down 4% from 2019—which in turn was down 4% from the previous year.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
