Three kids rule

Very cool presentation of the changing look of motherhood in the US.  Since 1990, mothers are 3% less likely to be under 20, 5% more likely to be over 35, 10% more likely to be Hispanic, and 13% more likely to be unmarried.

24% of mothers were foreign born in 2004, compared to 15% in 1990.

54% of mothers were likely to have some college in 2006, compared to 41% in 1990.

Anyways, lots of cool statistics that will no doubt completely reshape the next 20 years.

This one hits home.  I wonder about the spike in the 1990s of three kid desirability.  Cosby Show influences?
