Kansas birth rate lowest in recorded history

Kansas had several years in recent history in which birth rates decreased significantly, including from 2008 to 2011 and from 1992 to 1996. The decrease in Kansas birth rates reflects a national downward trend. In 2013, national birth rates dropped to record lows for women under 30, and the general fertility rate was also at an all-time low, according to a recent report.
