Many women are curious to know the fertility rates of women by age in the United States. As could be expected, fertility rates are highest for women in the middle of their childbearing years. Fertility rates are highest for women ages 25 to 29 at 106 births per 1,000 in 2013.

The next highest fertility rates are for women ages 30 to 34 at 99 births per 1,000. Beginning in 2003, the birth rate for women ages 35 to 39 has been higher than that for young women ages 15 to 19—a marked change from previous years. Birth rates for women ages 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, and 45-54 increased between 2010 and 2013, while birth rates for younger women decreased.


It is also important to note that birth rates for women over 45, and for those under 15, were below one birth per 1,000 in 2013. Declines were greatest for women between the ages of 15 and 24 (falling by 22 percent for women 15 to 19, and by 10 percent for women 20 to 24).It is very interesting to see what happens with fertility rates in the United States as they continue to change very often.
