Plots of marital fertility vs. proportion of women that have had a first marriage in the 25–29 year age range with colored regions indicating the ranges for the marital birth ratio. Points indicate the combinations of marital fertility and proportion married by year. Plot a indicates African-Americans and b indicates White Americans. Age-specific fertility rates assumed for a and b are 102 per 1000 women and 115 per 1000 women respectively. The colors represent marital birth ratios of green (greater than 90%), yellow (75–90%), orange (50–75%), and red (less than 50%). Data from (Ventura and Bachrach (2000); Martin et al. (2002); National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) (2006); Martin et al. (2017))
