The fertility rate in CO is 14th in the nation, after, in alphabetical order: Alaska, Arizona, California, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Utah. Utah's is the highest. Fertility rate is the number of births per 1000 women of childbearing age.

Colorado seems to have a lot of kids because there are a lot of young people here starting families. Of the states ahead of CO, only Arizona, Idaho and Utah have significant Mormon populations.

Your 2c are valid. The schools in eastern Boulder Co were bursting at the seams 10-20 years ago. Now that school construction has caught up with the population growth, the schools actually in some cases have some empty seats. The population in the area has gotten older, as the people like me who came here in our 20s and 30s are now older, along with our kids.

Boulder and Louisville's populations dropped slightly (per city data); Lafayette's, Longmont's, and Superior's increased. Those are the major cities in the county (though Longmont is partially in Weld Co., but that is a very small part of that city). Someone else can do all the math and figure out if the entire county dropped; I don't think so.

How much, if you dont mind me asking, are you willing to spend on a house, and how bad is it in MD (housing costs wise)?

I think that really all depends on the neighborhood you live in. I lived in a few different places in Pa. One place had barely any kids my childrens age and others had more than I wanted
The place I live now there is only 14 houses on my street and within those 14 houses are as follows. To my left 2 kids, next to them 3 kids, next to them 2 kids, to my right 3 kids, next to them 2 kids. That is just 4 houses and they are all within the same aga range.
Another house I lived in had five 6year old little girls (the age my daughter was) and I would have little girls in my house all the time! Drove me crazy hehe.
So I think it just depends on where you live.

You should move to a border town. They're popping them out like nobody's business down there.

I know in the Fox Valley area of WI, it is very common to see people with 4, 5 even 6 kids. I have no idea how they can afford all of them, but they seem to manage.
