A center for Disease Control and Prevention has disclosed information regarding the births of babies for teen mothers. The data says that the number of births by teenage mothers has reduced to a great extent.
The data used for the study said that the rate of teen births reduced by 8% between 2010 and 2011. According to the findings of the study, more women gave birth at the age of 30s or early 40s. On the other hand, if the growth in the child births between 35 to 39 year olds is seen, then one would find three percent rise in births.
The lead author of the report, CDC statistician Brady Hamilton said, "The economy has declined, and that certainly is a factor that goes into people's decisions about having a child". He said that had the teen birth rates not reduced, there would have been 3.6 million more baby births.
Hamilton has welcomed the news as he believes that the efforts of the programs have provided results. Dr. Krishna Upadhya, who studies teen pregnancy at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, has attributed the findings to the contraceptive measures taken by the teenage couples. She tagged this development as good news.
She also cautioned about the findings by saying that there are still places where the condoms and contraceptive measures are not available to the teenagers.
