Abstract:
In North Carolina and across the United States, birth rates have steadily fallen over the past several decades. In recent years, however, both the birth rate and the induced abortion rate of older women have risen, and first-time births among women of ages thirty and older have risen sharply. Problems that may be associated with delayed and limited childbearing are examined and discussed in this report.

An analysis of TEF and OA clusters suggests that women who are within early stages of pregnancy during times of high incidence of Type A influenza are at higher risk of giving birth to a child with TEF or OA.
