A summary of the report,“What If: How Declines in Teen Births Have Improved Poverty and Child Well-Being,” is made available by teenpregnancy.org. ()

Fewer children in the United States may be living in poverty, in large part, because of a significant drop in teenage pregnancies, suggests a recent report.

Produced by the National Campaign to Prevent Teenage Pregnancy, a Washington-based advocacy group, the report says the national birthrate for teenage mothers declined by 30 percent between 1991 and 2002 to 43 births per 1,000 girls ages 15 to 19. California, Maine, and Michigan showed the greatest drops.
