Summary
Childbearing patterns have profound consequences for society, including demand for services and women's participation in the labor force. This report examines trends in childbearing in the United States. It compares three birth cohorts of women, representing generations born at 25-year intervals in 1910, 1935, and 1960. Using data from the Natality Data Files of the National Vital Statistics System, the report discusses total fertility, age at first birth, average number of children born per woman, and childlessness rates. The study found that women born in 1935 had the most children (on average 3.0 children per woman) and those born in 1960 had the fewest (2.0), with women born in 1910 and 1935 starting their childbearing at the youngest ages, with an average or median age at first birth of 21 years
