US fertility rate hits all-time low with decrease in 2023 births

The teen birth rate in the US dropped to a new low in 2023, while women aged 30 to 34 had the highest birth rate, according to CDC data. The overall fertility rate in the US hit a record low, with 3.6 million babies born in 2023. Birth rates decreased for most age groups, but increased for women over 40. The data also suggests that states with abortion bans had higher fertility rates. Cesarean deliveries are on the rise, with nearly a third of all births being C-sections, the highest rate in a decade.
