Teen birth rates at record low
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, the birth rate for teen girls has dropped 8 percent between 2010 and 2011. This is not a new trend, as teen birth rates have dropped from 2007 to 2011. The study put out by the NCHS has several theories as to why the teen birth rate has dropped, from the economy to the CDC recommending long-acting birth control methods such as IUDs to teens.
