New U.S. fertility data suggest that having a higher education isn't associated with having a big family: Women who are college graduates are likely to have fewer children — if they have them at all — than their less-educated sisters, the Census Bureau said Monday.
"Our findings show that a 'delayer boom' is under way, where highly educated women initially delay childbearing, but are more likely to have children into their 30s," said bureau demographer Kristy Krivickas.
"But these women do not fully catch up to the childbearing levels of women with fewer years of schooling," she said.
