According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, teen pregnancy rates are at a historic low. The reasons for the decline is not clear. It could be that more teens are delaying or reducing sexual activity and more teen who are sexually active may be using birth control.
Even with the low rates of teen pregnancy, the U.S. still has a substantially higher teen pregnancy rate than in other western industralized nations.
