A new baby boom is happening, and many of the changes are affecting families.
The New York Times reports the number of births in the United States has more than tripled since 2000, with more than one in four births occurring to women in their early 30s.
It also reports that births among people aged 25 to 34 in the U.S. has increased by almost half since 2000.
The numbers are all trending in the same direction: births are growing, and the trend is not stopping.
The latest statistics show that the share of births to women aged 30 to 34 has grown by over 40 percent over the past decade, from 17 percent in 2005 to 27 percent in 2020.
Meanwhile, births to men aged 30-34 are on the rise, with nearly 60 percent of births occurring in that age group in 2020, up from just 30 percent in 2006.
The birth rate is also up in many other age groups, including the baby boomer generation.
The average age of first birth for women who are younger than 30 is now 33.7 years, compared to 33.5 years for men.
There’s also been an increase in the number and type of babies.
In the U, the number has risen by a third from 617,000 births in 2005-2011 to 642,000 in 2020-2021.
In 2020, the total number of live births for women aged 25-34 was 1,534,000, up by more than 4 million from 518,000 live births in 2004-2010.
The baby boomers are now the fastest growing generation in the country, and are poised to continue the trend of growth.
