Becoming a mother used to be seen as a unifying milestone for women in the United States. But a new analysis of four decades of births shows that the age that women become mothers varies significantly by geography and education. The result is that children are born into very different family lives, heading for diverging economic futures.
"Data on Mothers Reveal Schisms Across America" is from the August 04, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Quoctrung Bui and Claire Cain Miller and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
