Whether you were perusing an art fair, heading out to brunch or just hangin' at home with mom, Mother's Day recognizes a very important and large part of the country's population.

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates there are 82.5 million mothers in the country.

Fifty-six percent of women who are between the ages of 15 and 44 are mothers.

Mississippi has the highest percentage in that age group at 68 percent. The average American mother is 25 years old when she has her first child.
