Birth rates in the United States are near record lows, but not for everyone. Under the surface of the fertility decline is a little-noticed fact: Births have declined much more among nonreligious Americans than among the devout. Rates of conversion into unfaith are too high, and fertility rates too low, to yield stable religious populations. Religious women who attended church less than weekly had lower fertility in all time periods but especially during the 2000s. Religious birth rates simply are not high enough to offset losses from the move to irreligion.
