Teen Birth Rates for California Counties

By Maryam

Over the past two decades, teen pregnancy has declined almost continuously. Between 1990 and 2010 (the most recent year for which data are available), the teen pregnancy rate declined by 51 percent—from 116.9 to 57.4 pregnancies per 1,000 teen girls. According to HHS, the decline is due to both increased percentage of adolescents who are waiting to have sex, as well as an increased use of contraceptives by teens.

At Nurx, we are making birth control even more accessible- including for teens.
