More American women are choosing to be childless in their 30s and 40s.

New information from the U.S. Census Bureau claims that 15.3 percent of women, ages 40 to 44, were childless in June 2014, which is up from 15.1 percent in 2012.

The Wall Street Journal notes there have been changes in the way the U.S. Census processes data, but before those changes, 9.6 percent of these women were childless in 2010, which was an increase from 2008 when 9.2 percent didn't have children.

The new data also shows that 18.5 percent of women, ages 35 to 39, were childless in June 2014, compared to 2012 when the number was 17.2 percent.

In total, 47.6 percent of American women ages 15 to 44 did not have children, which was an increase from 2012 when the percentage was 46.5 percent.

The U.S. Census added, "The number of women age 40 to 44 who had only one child roughly doubled between 1976 and 2014."
