In this paper, we tried a cross section analysis on the factors influencing the number of births in the each area of Kyushu and Okinawa. To examine the effect of the economic situation of young households on childbirth, we estimated the avarage income of young people and the ratio of the young low-income group in economic areas in Kyushu and Okinawa from "National Survey of Family Income and Expenditure" and conducted quantitative analysis of the relation between the variables and the number of birth. As a result, the ways of determining the birth number in Kyushu and Okinawa differ from each other. Moreover, in each region of Kyushu excluding Okinawa, their scale of economy decides their own number of births and their economic status of young people does not significantly affect their birth number.
