Teenage Pregnancy Prevention: Statistics and Programs
Carmen Solomon-Fears (au)
In 2010, U.S. teen births accounted for 9.3% of all births and 20.1% of all nonmarital births. In 2008, 2009, and 2010 the teen birth rate dropped below the 2007 teen birth rate, reversing a two-year upward trend. Although the birth rate for U.S. teens has dropped in 17 of the last 19 years, it remains higher than the teen birth rate of most industrialized nations. Preventing teen pregnancy is generally considered a priority among policymakers and the public because of its high economic, social, and health costs for teen parents and their families. This report examines some of the data collected by the Nat. Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) on teenage childbearing, offers potential reasons for high teen pregnancy and birth rates, and provides information on federal programs whose purpose is primarily to delay sexual activity among teenagers and to reduce teen pregnancy. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
