The most fertile states in the nation
Do you live in one of the most fertile states? We used the Centers for Disease Control's total fertility rates to determine the most fertile parts of the United States:
1. Utah: 2.374 children born per woman
2. South Dakota: 2.269
3. Idaho: 2.193
4. Alaska: 2.185
5. North Dakota: 2.122
6. Nebraska: 2.119
7. Kansas: 2.118
8. Hawaii: 2.095
9. Texas: 2.075
10. Oklahoma: 2.039
The least fertile states in the nation
Is your home state resistant to multiple children? These are the states (inclusive of the District of Columbia) with the lowest total fertility rates:
1. Rhode Island: 1.593 children born per woman
2. New Hampshire: 1.605

Conservatives are out reproducing the left.
The only exception is Hawaii, which now belongs to China anyway, LOL.
Hawaii is a bit of puzzler. Maybe the gorgeous climate makes folks romantic.
Tribal culture actually is very family oriented in Hawaii,
and as you say, the climate has an influence, as well as the food.Too bad they are raving leftists for the most part.
Our daughter was told she would never be able to get pregnant again after having her son, due to severe endometriosis.
In 2012, our daughter and son-in-law finally came here to northern ID to see our place. We had been driving the 1000 miles to pick up our grandson, then almost 10 years old, every summer. (How else is a Californian boy going to learn to properly shoot, reload ammo and the like?)
Our newest grandson will be 2 years old on the 14th. It must be something in the clean water, air or food? laughing....
Florida seems to be middle of the road but if it is just measured by female population and not age specific then it could be skewed because of so many retirees.
It’s the potatoes.
The food? What are they eating—chocolate, oysters, and rhinoceros horns?
ALL of those Red England states fall into the ‘least fertile’ category...a beautiful thing when you consider how far left the population is. One would think with the harsh winters they would be more fertile...
Gee, maybe there’s a problem with those gay marriages after all.
There’s a pretty close (not perfect) correlation between high average personal income and low birth rate.
On a state-by-state basis? If so, is cost of living factored in?
The food? What are they eatingchocolate, oysters, and rhinoceros horns?>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Nothng so exotic.
Poi and fish.
Combined they are a natural “Afrodieselack!”
LOL...could be. You may have seen where Red Hampshire's fag Episcopalian bishop is 'divorcing' his 'husband'...oh, noes!
Education level as well. Perhaps more so.
That Robinson affair is something that could even make Red Hampshire blush.
It should, but it won’t...Red Hampshire is cool with sodomite ‘marriage’, abortion, open primaries and other abominations.
If conceptions were the basis for the counting then the state rankings might be different—lots of honeymoons and vacations in Florida.
