    I'm not sure it's just older folks dying faster due to recession (although that is likely the lion's share). There is also huge unemployment in the 18-24 demographic, and not much better in 25-30. These are typically the child bearing years. Youth unemployment is cutting across all demographics including suburban whites, and the jobs out there for this demographic are seriously low-paying. I would suspect many suburban young adults are opting to wait to have kids until the their job prospects improve.  

    I wish everyone released their cross tabs like dKos... It helps reduce the guess work.
