Thanks, new information to me at least.

I'm very surprised it peaked as late as it did. I was born in 1950 in Ohio, my doctor was a displaced Chinese (!) from Taiwan and my circumcision was totally routine. Nobody asked any questions. Either about the circumcision or what the hell a chink DP was doing in rural Ohio when Truman was president.

The whole trouble then was nobody asked too many questions at all.

I thought the rate started going down just after I was born but it actually seems to have kept climbing for many years. Live and learn.
