Smaller families in the UK

The number of children women are having is continuing to decline, to a record low of 1.89, according to the Office for National Statistics.
Its study compared two groups of women: those born in 1972, who are now in their 40s, with those born in 1945, who had an average of 2.19 children.
The numbers of families in England and Wales with just one child grew from 14% to 18%. Childlessness also increased in women, from 10% to 18%.
