How Many Babies Are Born Each Year in the US? Hint: Same Number It's Been For 70 years!

If you learned in school back in the 1950's that there are 4 million babies born a year in the US, you'd basically still be right, as the number of births has been surprisingly steady: (original chart and bigger story at the Wall Street Journal)

However, over that same time span, the US population has grown linearly (chart below from www.multpl.com), so the number of babies per capita is shrinking.
