Trivia Tidbit of the Day: Part 592 -- Illegitimacy Rates.

Diverging Out-Of-Wedlock Birthrates By Class-

More than 40% of all births in America are now out of wedlock, and a much higher proportion than ever before are white women, but there are big differences between and among classes:

wedlock.jpg
It comes down to this: well-educated white women in moderately affluent circumstances almost never had babies without a husband, and women from middle class homes were almost as finicky about requiring a husband. At the same time, white women with no more than a high school education in low-income households were having nearly half of their babies without a husband.

Beaver Cleaver is still in many ways correlated with success, and vice versa, despite the image on TV and in movies of successful white women having children out of wedlock.

I'm sure this is the fault of the wealthy & Bush & Cheney....Since when is the term "overclass" used?! Over what? Over what you deem is enough?
