The rates in both countries are dropping rapidly. I don't know the rate for Canada in the early 90's but for the US, it was 92%. By 1999, the rate for Canada had dropped to 17% and the US had dropped to 58.7%. By 2001, the US rate had dropped to 55.1% and if that same rate continues, the rate for 2004 will be 49.6% and there is no reason to believe it won't. At least by 2005 or 2006 it will be less than 50%. This is where peer influence will take over. As expectant moms see more and more of their peers have chosen to not circumcise, they will be influenced by the trend. I fully expect that by the end of this decade the rate will be less than 30% in the US. That is because of peer influence and doctors becoming more comfortable and more empowered to speak out against circumcision.
