Neidert discusses U.S. fertility rates and trends on PRI

a PSC In The News reference, 2013

"Family Choices: Opting to Have Kids Later in Life - Or Not At All" - ideastream. 08/28/2013.

Lisa Neidert and colleagues discuss the factors affecting birth rates and population change in the U.S. When asked whether the recent dip in fertility to below replacement level represents "cause for alarm," Neidert says growth in the rate of childlessness and population aging make fertility trends a new story in the U.S. (Audio: Neidert's comments begin at 4:40 mark.)
