Doing a little math, and using basic numbers provided by the Department of Health and Human Services the rate, based on 2005 live births is about 7.9 per minute.

A:

The US Birth Rate is about 1 live birth every 8 seconds. This equals 10,800 births per day or 7.5 a minute.

A:

Another way to calculate (data came from nationmaster):

Current U.S. Birth Rate = 14.18 live births per 1,000 population

U.S. Population 2008 = 303,824,640

14.18 x 303,824.64 / 365 = 11,803 current live births per day, about 8 every minute.

During 2010 there were 3,999,386 births in the U.S. according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The number of births in the U.S. has been declining for decades and preliminary data for 2011 indicate that the U.S. birth rate declined again to the lowest level since 1920. During the post war Baby Boom years, the birth rate was 122.7 per 1,000 woman of childbearing age compared to a birthrate of only 63.2 for 2011.

Research has shown a correlation between the birth rate and economic distress. An example of this is the 7% decline in the overall number of births from 2007 to 2010, a period marked by a deep recession.
