Desire for Large Families Hits 50-Year High in America: Gallup

A growing number of people in America prefer families of three or more children, hitting the highest desire for large families since 1971.

According to a Gallup survey released Monday, the number of people who prefer smaller and larger family sizes are statistically tied, bouncing back from a decadeslong trend of believing one or two children was ideal.

“Overall, this recent survey shows that Americans might finally be climbing out of the anti-family bomb shelter caused by the myths of the 1960’s of a population explosion disaster,” Terry Schilling, the president of the American Principles Project, told the Washington Examiner. “Favoring more children is a sign that Americans are returning to basic principles and values that life was made for — bringing forth the next generation through the family.”

Forty-five percent now favor larger families, with 29% finding three children as ideal, 12% who prefer four, and 2% each who prefer five, six, or more. (Read more from “Desire for Large Families Hits 50-Year High in America: Gallup” HERE)
