Could Births Dip Below 4 Million?

In an end of the year data dump, the National Center for Health Statistics has released a flurry of reports on the nation's births: final birth statistics for 2008, preliminary birth statistics for 2009, and an unusual count of births through June 2010.

For the 12 months ending in June 2010, births fell to an annual 4,055,000. This is down from the all-time annual high of 4,316,233 in 2007. Yes, births could fall below 4 million in 2010.
