U.S. Teen Pregnancy Rates Dramatically Decline, Hit Lowest Level in 30 Years

The news comes from a report released by the United States National Center for Health Statistics. The report collected data on pregnancy in America from 1990 until 2008, the last year that data was available. Teen pregnancy rates are at the lowest since 1976 while pregnancy rates for women aged 30 and over have increased. The reason for these trends could be due to better contraception use as well as more women choosing to pursue careers, holding off pregnancy until later in life.
