How many children are there in average Catholic family?
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.
