According to the 2000 Census, the average US family sizewas 3.14 people.

The average number of children per all families was only .90 child.

The average number of children in families with childrenwas 1.86 children.

So families with children tended toward 2 children, but not significantly if you allow for the number of families with MORE than 2. The number of families with 1 is likely close to the number of families with 2. More than half (52%) of ALL families had no minor children at all.

With changing Demographics, this number could be larger in the 2010 Census. Larger families would weight both averages upward.

That answer differs from country to country. The average Catholic family in the USA is not statistically much larger than the American national average. This trend highlights the fact that many American Catholics are ignoring the Pope's edicts on birth control and many more are now practicing the church-sanction family planning practices which includes ovulation monitoring (avoiding sex during ovulation periods). In many other nations, the average family size for Catholics can run between 4 and 7 children.

The number of children in the average American family has dropped from 2.5 to 1.3. On average there are more boys in an American family than girls. In 2002 about 95,000 more boys were born than girls. The mother's age may influence this phenomenon: older mothers about 40 have fewer boys than girls. Teen mothers experience the opposite. Chinese mothers have the highest ratio of boys to girls.


Typically a family in America will have 1.5 children which in laymans terms is 2 children minus the dog and cat In the UK the average number of children used to be 2.4 children per family during the 1950s, however this has now reduced with falling birth rates to 1.8 children per family. This does not mean that every family has 1.8 children as you can't have 4/5 of a child, it effectively means that there are on average 9 children for every 5 families.
