  • Women in mask holds a baby Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer with the Carsey School, says birth rates had been drifting down for years and then went off a cliff during the Great Recession more than a decade ago. “In fact, because birth rates are so low and there’s been so little natural increase in the United States, the growth rate last year was the lowest it’s been since the time of the Spanish flu 100 years ago,” said Johnson. Combined with the fact that fewer immigrants are coming to the U.S., Johnson says serious implications from the birth rate decline hang over American society.
  • A diverse group of young students listening to their teaching read a book. The Commission to Study School Funding – established by the NH Legislature last year – has contracted with the Carsey School of Public Policy to find and identify a more equitable school funding system. Carsey is providing logistical support – including conducting research and managing communications – as part of this contract.
  • Image of a person testing COVID-19 samples Ken Johnson, senior demographer at the Carsey School, was recently interviewed by The Daily Mail  regarding the diminishing U.S. birth rate. "Survey data already suggest women are planning to delay births as well as delay marriage...I expect many couples to simply decide to delay having children," said Johnson.
