NCVHS: 2007 Most Fecund
Did it seem you reported more 84702s, 59400s, and 59510s than usual last year? According to the National Committee for Vital Health Statistics (NCVHS), 2007 was a record-breaking year for births in the United States.
Gleaned from the data you submitted when reporting, the NCVHS says there were at least 4,315,000 births in the country in 2007, up one percent over last year. This number surpasses the fertile Baby Boomer years of the 1950s.
More data is available in the September issue of Monitoring the Nation’s Health, NCVHS’s monthly statistical e-letter. The issue also reports a slight increase in marriages and a descrease in divorces and deaths.
