Fertility Statistics

The government tracks who is fertile and who is not, and you can check their statistics at their site.
Fertility is very age dependent. A much higher percent of women over 40 are infertile than women under 30 of course! Their main trends on site in 2012 are the following:

  • Number of women ages 15-44 with impaired fecundity (impaired ability to have children): 6.7 million
  • Percent of women ages 15-44 with impaired fecundity: 10.9%
  • Number of married women ages 15-44 that are infertile (unable to get pregnant for at least 12 consecutive months): 1.5 million
  • Percent of married women ages 15-44 that are infertile: 6.0%
  • Number of women ages 15-44 who have ever used infertility services: 7.4 million
