The sky isn’t falling you fecking idjits.
[Marriage is also a factor. Unmarried women don’t want a baby.
I am shook. Women don’t wanna be lumbered with the baby of a man who doesn’t care enough to be a husband and father?* They aren’t attracted to feckless manchilds?
“That’s because the decline in fertility has been far greater among minorities than among non-Hispanic whites”
NOT. A. BUG.
Chart for the lazy people:
Look at the actual data before whining.
That’s called a selection pressure, children.
Men won’t marry? Women won’t breed.
Who wins? [women, their relatives breed]
“But the “white” fertility figure is a bit misleading, as it includes most Hispanics, who have historically had much higher birth rates than non-Hispanic whites. Looking at all Hispanics together, these women are missing nearly 19% of the babies that would have been born from 2008-2016, or about 2.2 million births, as their age-adjusted fertility rates have fallen from 2.85 births per woman to just 2.1, and continue to decline. Meanwhile, non-Hispanic fertility has only declined from 1.95 births per woman to 1.72, yielding about 2.3 million missing births. Solidly half of the missing kids over the last decade would have been born to Hispanic mothers, despite the fact that Hispanics only make up about a quarter of fertility-age women.
Thus, in racial or ethnic terms, America’s “Baby Bust” is kinda, sorta, a little bit racist”
Telling them to be breeding sows isn’t?
Hey, what exactly are they claiming these women should do?
Get back in the maternity ward? Pump out future Dem voters?
*If you really “care” (virtue signal) about Western birth rates, Chicken Littles of the internet, ask MGTOW why they’re complaining about the birth rate but not marrying. You don’t get to complain if you’re causing the ‘problem’.
A problem you cause is a CHOICE.
[GDP will go up in a generation with fewer lower IQ drains on its system.]
Other data article:
For the lazy:
“That is, most long-run change in fertility can be accounted for by changes in the marital composition of society.”
“Marital status is a key determinant of whether or not women have as many kids as they want.”
HALF OR MORE.
Meanwhile, student loans must be written off if you care about IQ.
“It’s possible that debt may also reduce fertility, independently of marriage. Some studies do show that student debt has a strong effect on delaying fertility. The economic rationale is simple: having and raising children costs money, and student debt gobbles up a share of income right off the top of the budget. Crucially, even income-based repayment doesn’t fix this, as it resets with higher incomes: a debtor can’t earn their way out. As income rises, so do debt payments. At some high threshold, of course, the debtor can exceed the required payments and can advance the date of final repayment, but the point is that student loans, no matter how they are structured, divert money that might have gone towards planning for a child. It’s even possible that student loans delay marriage because they cause debtors to change their childbearing anticipations: maybe debtors realize they won’t be able to afford a child for a long time, and so they postpone marriage until they are (financially) ready for a child.”
Men can’t afford to marry, have kids unless loans are much lower.
Loan control would be a conservative policy, boosting high IQ fertility.
More babies being born are born to high IQ, educated parents.
Again, actual data.
“Finances, and student debt, specifically, aren’t the only reason for delayed marriage. Most unmarried people who want to get married say either that they are too young and unready for marriage, or else they haven’t found the right person. It may be that part of the problem is the decline in “marriageable men.” At the metro area level, the imbalance in sex ratios can sometimes be enormous.”
“The simple fact of the matter is that marital status is a key determinant of whether or not women have as many kids as they want.”
Women want to have kids, it’s the mens’ fault.
“Combined, it turns out that a combination of marital status, age, and fertility ideals is a pretty good predictor of individual-level fertility. In other words, marital status serves as a circuit-breaker on fertility aims: married people get close to achieving their aims, while never-married people generally don’t.”
“But one vital driver of birth rates is marriage. And as long as the average age of first marriage rises and the number of prime childbearing years the average woman spends married falls, we can expect to see fertility linger at low levels. Therefore, any policy supporting childbirth—however generous it may be—that does not also somehow impact marriage trends is unlikely to boost long-term fertility.”
It isn’t women’s fault they won’t man up.
The data is loud and clear.
White bachelor men are cucking themselves.
