In 2017, South Dakota (2,227.5) had the highest total fertility rate of the 50 states and the District of Columbia; the District of Columbia had the lowest (1,421.0). For non-Hispanic white women, the highest total fertility rate was in Utah (2,099.5) and the lowest in the District of Columbia (1,012.0).
