A few deeply interesting stats brought to us by the Pew Research Center
- The nation's birth rate dropped 8 percent in 2010, the most recent year for which data is available. That decrease is due largely to immigrant women opting to have fewer children.
- That same year, the share of new marriages between couples with different racial or ethnicity climbed to 15.1 percent
- Half of parents with teens who access the Internet say they have used some sort of monitoring or site-blocking software in an effort to try to stay on top of their kid's virtual lives.
- Nearly one third -- 32 percent -- of ALL Americans have benefited from two or more entitlement programs in their lifetime.
