U.S. Births Down For Fourth Straight Year

NEW YORK (October 3, 2012)--U.S. births have fallen for the fourth year in a row, although the decline in 2011 was just 1 percent, not as much as seen in other recent years, the government said Wednesday.

Analysts said the decline is proof that the weak economy is causing some people to think twice about having children.
