The latest CDC statistics (2009) on the multiple birth rate in the United States reports that the 2009 twin birth rate rose 33.2 per 1,000, with 133,217 live births, another record high. The twinning rate rose 70 percent between 1980 and 2004, but the pace of the increased rate has slowed in recent years. The 2009 triplet/+ birth rate was 153.5 per 100,000 which is the first rise in this rate since 2001. The triplet/+birth rate climbed more than 400 percent between 1980 and 1998. (Source: CDC)
