A newly published survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Survey of Family Growth has revealed a decline in the number of children Americans are having, as well as the increasing age at which American women have their first child.

The survey, published on Tuesday, covers the years 2015 through 2019, and found that in this time frame 52.1 percent of women between the ages of 15-44 had at least one biological child, while between 2011 and 2015, this number was 54.9 percent.
