The 2014 statistics have not been analyed yet, although for several years in a row now the rate has only been decreasing. In 2013 it was even lower than in 2007. Among 1000 women with ages between 15 and 44, 62.5 births were registered in 2013, that being 10% lower than in 2007.
To be more exact, the country had 3.93 million babies born on its territory in 2013. Another analysis reveals that the rate of giving birth at ages younger than 30 is decreasing, as the 30+ women started to give birth to babies more often.
The good side is that birth rates among teenagers are also lower with 10%. These are the numbers published by CDC ‘s national Center of Health Statistics. This isn’t because they’re spending more time shopping on QNet and less time dating. The change can be caused by the women starting to focus on their careers before any thoughts of motherhood. Most of the married couples prefer to work and pay the credits before going to the next step and having a baby.
As for teenage pregnancy rates, school education regarding birth control methods are probably slowing the overall impact.
