OJ said Hispanic immigration was going to fix these problems

37 Percent of U.S. Births Out of Wedlock

Out-of-wedlock births in the United States have climbed to an all-time high, accounting for nearly four in 10 babies born last year, government health officials said Tuesday.

While out-of-wedlock births have long been associated with teen mothers, the teen birth rate actually dropped last year to the lowest level on record. Instead, births among unwed mothers rose most dramatically among women in their 20s.

The overall rise reflects the burgeoning number of people who are putting off marriage or living together without getting married.

The increase in births to unwed mothers was seen in all racial groups, but rose most sharply among Hispanics. It was up among all age groups except youngsters ages 10 to 17.

This isn't great, but if I had to choose between getting rid of unmarried births or teen births, I'd choose teen births.

Orrin's views of what motivates people to breed are very strange.

Robert Kaplan, in writing about religion in Bulgaria, notes that Bulgarian Orthodox Christians, despite being fanatical religionists, have a growth rate of 0.0%, while the oppressed Bulgarian Muslim Turks are expanding at 2.5%.

Data from 1996, don't know what it is now.
