"Births: Preliminary Data for 2011"
Pregnancy rates for young women ages 15 to 19 are at the lowest ever recorded in the United States, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The declines were steepest among 15- to 17-year-olds, whose birth rates dropped 29 percent from 2007 to 15.4 births per 1,000 in 2011.
Among different racial and ethnic groups, declines from 2010 to 2011 for 15- to 19-year-olds ranged from 6 to 8 percent for white, black, American Indian and Asians. The birth rate for Hispanic teenagers fell 11 percent from 2010 to 2011, and dropped 34 percent from 2007 to 2011, the largest decline of any population group, the CDC said.
