Why This Indicator Matters
According to America's Health Rankings, having a child as a teen is associated with health, social, and economic costs -- "Teen mothers are significantly more likely to drop out of high school and face unemployment" and children of teen mothers are at higher risk for negative health outcomes as well. Despite continued declines in teen birth rates, disparities persist along economic, geographic, racial-ethnic, income, and educational lines. For instance, teens living in low-income counties have higher teen birth rates than teens living in higher income counties. American Indian/Alaskan Native, Hispanic, non-Hispanic Black, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander teens have a birth rate twice as high as non-Hispanic white teens,1 and teen birth rates are especially high across Appalachia and the South.
Addressing these disparities in risk is key, as teen pregnancy and birth are related to significant costs for tax payers, including elevated costs in health care, foster care, and incarceration, as well as lost tax revenue from teen parents’ attenuated educational attainment and employment potential.2
