Teenage Pregnancy Rate on the Decline

Data recently released by the Economist shows that the teenage pregnancy rate is on the decline, from almost 12% at the high of the 90’s, to 7%. While the pregnancy rate has declined for White, African American, and Hispanic teenage girls 15-19 years old, black and Hispanic teenagers are still more likely to get pregnant. The abortion rate has also declined, though it still remains higher for black teenagers.
