Frey says drop in Hispanic birth rate driven by more than recession

a PSC In The News reference, 2012

"Hispanic Pregnancies Fall in U.S. as Women Choose Smaller Families" - New York Times. 12/31/2012.

In this story on declining birth rates among U.S. Hispanics -- both immigrant and native-born -- William Frey says that although recessions often produce dips in birth rates, this steep four-year decline is driven by other factors as well. He says that it signals the desire of young Latinas to become members of the upwardly mobile middle class.
