In Sacramento, millennials bring falling birth rates

As more twenty-somethings hit the workforce, they are more likely to delay marriage and to have kids, according to statistics from the US state of California.

In Sacramento, a city in California, the effect was more pronounced as young people from across the country migrated to the city for job opportunities. Its birth-rate has fallen by about 20 per cent over the last decade.

A majority of millennials are choosing to focus on their careers before starting a family, with many of them focusing on building a stable job before even thinking about kids, according to experts.
