Census confirms Mormons have many children   posted by Razib @ 8/11/2009 12:35:00 AM

I've been poking around the Census data sets for a few days now. I want to merge them with the longevity stuff soon, but while was at it I decided to check to see how variation in geography related to variation in fertility. You can go to the GSS and see all sorts of national trends, but I thought a county-by-county view would be of interest. Click the images for bigger versions. The fertility is defined as "women with births in the past 12 months; rate per 1,000 women." Coming out of the American Community Survey. All the data are for Non-Hispanic white women.
