Far more adults don’t want children than previously thought

    Interesting read. A small sample size at 1,000 but interesting that they found over 25% of adults could be identified as consciously child-free.

    I was also interested in this bit and would like to know more:

    Although child-free people were pretty similar to everyone else, we did find that parents were less warm toward child-free people. This finding suggests that child-free individuals may be stigmatized in the United States.

    There was an embedded link that points to a study of stigmatization of child free: That's a study of emotional reactions to the child free; there are far more stigmatizations that go on beyond just responses, like job preferences and especially time off favoring parents, let alone all the cash incentives.
