DEMOGRAPHICS - Births by Population Type
County  |  Age Group  |  Ethnicity  |  Population Type
Civilian and Military Births and Birth Rates: The birth rate among active duty military personnel and their dependents ranges from two to nearly three times the birth rate in the civilian population. The higher birth rate in the military population reflects the concentration of individuals of childbearing age (ages 15-44) in the military population. The birth rate to military families has increased 5 percent since 1980, while the birth rate for the civilian population (residential population that is neither military personnel nor a dependant of someone in the military), dropped by 16 percent during the same period (1980-2011).  The birth rate for the military population spiked again in 2011 to 35.2 births per 1,000 population, representing the highest birth rate since 1990.
