The Survey

Laura Scott's independent survey of 171 childless by choice individuals in the U.S. and Canada reveals the most compelling motives to remain childless/childfree, exposes gender and age group disparities, and allows us to more fully appreciate the difference between an early articulator and an acquiescer in the decision-making process.
