Tell me if any of these stats are a shocker, or sound about right (for the US)

25% of Men ages 40-50 are childless. 17% of Men have never been married by the time they're in their 40s. 60% of men (ages 15+) are fathers. 72% of them are biological.

15% of women ages 40-50 are childless, and 14% had never been married

Sounds about right
Just saw a report that said the annual birth rate dropped for the 6th year in a row

[@575075,RoxClymer] you really think its that though? I think thats more like an excuse to not take on the responsibility. Not that anyone HAS to have kids

[@776330,MntoNc] responsibility is a big part of it too,
Another big factor for me is my fucked up genetics, I wouldn't want to be reponsible for passing them on, and then my kid recieving them and having as hard a life as I have had.

In addition, because of my genetics I knew my income was going to severely limit my income, and I'm Not going to have a kid and not be able to support them

I was born with Spina bifida, birth rate is about 1:100

Modern birth rate for Autism is 1:10
