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.
