New record low U.S. fertility rate

According to recent data from the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the U.S. fertility rate sank to a record low of 62.0 births per 1,000 women of reproductive age in 2016.  The last year of the Obama administration saw the fertility rate fall to an all-time low.
