A September 16 Bloomberg article says more US millennial women (those born after 1980) are waiting to have children. Birth rates are at record lows for teens and for women ages 20 to 24 years old. In addition, birth rates for women 25 to 29 are declining. “The mean age of mothers having their first child was 25.8 years in 2012, up from 21.4 years in 1970,” the article says.
