Hangzhou Net Release time: 2021-11-23 05:40

China News Service, November 22. According to a report from the Russian Satellite Network on the 22nd, a recent survey conducted by the Pew Research Center showed that the proportion of the American population who does not plan to have children is rising.

According to reports, the survey shows that among the 18-49-year-old childless group, the proportion of the population who does not intend to have children reached 44%, an increase of 7 percentage points from 37% in 2018. Among those who already have children, the proportion of those who do not plan to have more children remained unchanged at 74%.

The decline in the desire to bear children is the same for both men and women. Among the reasons given by the interviewees, 19% are health status, 17% are financial status, 15% are not having a partner, 10% are because of their age or their partner’s age, and 9% are because of the “world situation”. Another 5% mentioned environmental reasons, such as climate change, and another 2% mentioned that their partners were unwilling to have children.

According to reports, 3866 American residents participated in the survey.

The Wall Street Journal previously stated that due to a decade of continuous decline in the fertility rate, the population growth rate in the United States has been slow, and under the influence of the new crown epidemic, the population growth rate in the United States has dropped to near zero. In 2020, among the states in the U.S., the number of deaths exceeded half of the number of births. In 2019, there were only five states with this situation.
