By the Numbers: February 2022

Space Coast Mothers of Multiples is in the second half of its membership year! Let’s take a look at the makeup of the club right now…

Types of Multiples: the club has very similar numbers of boy/boy, girl/girl, and boy/girl twins. There are two triplet families currently, each having two girls and one boy. No current members have quads or higher, and no current members have more than one set of multiples.

Ages of Multiples: While many local clubs across the country have their highest numbers in expecting, infant, and toddler mothers of multiples, Space Coast’s membership has a balance of age groups, and is skewing older than it has in the last six years. About half of the members have multiples age 4 or younger, while the other half are age 5 and up, including eight families with adult multiples.

Location of Members: “Space Coast” is a nickname for Brevard County, Florida, as NASA and other space systems companies are based here. The county is 72 miles north-to-south, and it also includes barrier islands. Those islands have more members than they have in the past, and our overall geography is very skewed to the south and central parts of Brevard, with very few members living north of SR 528. The club also has members who have moved but continue to remain in the organization, explaining the “outside Brevard County” component – other states currently represented include Virginia, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Colorado!

Length of Membership: The club will celebrate 39 years in existence in less than three months, and its longest-active member has belonged for 29 of those years! This is an area with a nice spread across the board, and there has been a nice increase in members involved for 5 or more years. The group’s growth rate is steady, as this is the second consecutive year with a quarter of its members joining in the past twelve months.

More than Multiples: Slightly more than half of the members have other children in addition to their multiples, but no member has singletons both older and younger than their multiples at the moment.

As seen above, many different types of members make up Space Coast Mothers of Multiples. If you’ve wondered about the group in the past or are discovering it now for the first time, please reach out – more information is available and your emails will be answered promptly.
