Having children after age 45 higher in 1960

45 -
The percentage of women having children after age 45 was higher in 1960 than it is now, because more women then continued to have children until they hit menopause.

Lacking convenient, reliable contraceptives, they lacked today's choices about when to have children. The birth control pill became widely available in the early 1960's.
