STATS AND FACTS | FERTILITY OF YOUNG WOMEN FALLING | The trend towards later marriage has been accompanied by a trend towards later childbearing. Over recent decades there has been a marked decline in childbearing by women under the age of 30 and an increase in fertility among those in their thirties. Between 1976 and 1996, fertility fell from 50 to 33 births per 1,000 women aged 15 to 19 and from 152 to 81 per 1,000 aged 20 to 24. Births among those aged under 15 remained below 1 per 1,000 over this period. Women are now considerably more likely to give birth in their late twenties or early thirties than in their teens or early twenties www.stats.govt.nz
