Have YOU ever notice that in the U.S., typical large families(6 children or more per household)
receive socioeconomic assistance &/or donations of one kind of another either from the government, charities, or relatives? It seems that large families aren't self-sufficient nor self-reliant socioeconomically.It is the rare large family who is socioeconomically self-sufficient/self-reliant.There are fewer still who can be classified as socioeconomically stable i.e. solidly middle class or above. Most large families can be deemed socioeconomically poor, even impoverished to the point of utter penury.
The most common large families that I see in S Cal are hispanics. That is why the Hispanics and the Caucasians are equal in population size here.
There is a correlation between female education and family size. This is less directly correlated with IQ. (A person with a doctorate is not necessarily smarter than one with a bachelor's degree, but those who have lower IQs rarely complete a bachelor's degree aside from fluffy liberal arts / -studies degrees.)
Large families are therefore more likely in poorer families, though not necessarily less intelligent, though there is some correlation.
One way to look at it is a choice to invest in human capital versus saving and investing money. Seeing children as a blessing and obligation, too, leads to some having large families. I know this is true for friends of ours who had three kids before adopting four more.
Large families are socioeconomically poor to impoverished. Struggle, scarcity, & doing without even the rudiments are integral parts of large family life. Because of socioeconomic impoverishment, it is commonplace for large families to received outside assistance to keep them socioeconomically afloat & to provide them w/food & clothing. Large families are seldom, if ever, completely self-reliant. Furthermore, middle, upper middle, & upper large families are extremely rare. The overwhelming majority of large families are poor, impoverished, & even penurious.
It is simple mathematics the more children parents have, the poorer socioeconomically they & their children will be. There is LESS to go around. There is a saying that large families have less. When one grows up in a large family, h/she is used to going without. H/she is used to having an inferior quality of life, subsisting at the most basic & primitive level. H/she feels that poverty, want, & scarcity are normative lifestyle. H/she becomes used to this & is satisfied w/crumbs. As my late father stated that those from large families are used & happy w/nothing.
