34. Here's the biggest reason why the US birth rate is declining.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/09/pf/cost-of-raising-a-child-2015/index.html

Avg cost was $233,610 to raise a child in the US in 2015. That's not counting college costs.

So raising 3 kids will now cost you about $750k, in 2015 dollars. So costs are up, while wages remain fairly stagnant.
