Teen birth rate has INCREASED the first time in 14 years!
Yesterday the CDC announced that the U.S. teen birth rate has increased for the first time for 14 years, especially among 15-19 year olds. The statistics are featured in a new report, "Births: Preliminary Data for 2006," prepared by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, and are based on data from over 99 percent of all births for the United States in 2006.
