Definition and Source



Number and percent of births to females under 19 who had previously given birth. The percentage for this indicator is calculated out of all teen births (i.e., of all the babies that were born to teens, how many babies were born to to teens that were already moms?).

Data Source

Bureau of Vital Statistics, Texas Department of State Health Services.


To prevent the potential identification of individuals, counts of 1-9 and percentages based on counts 1-9 are suppressed ("LNE"). "NA" indicates when the teen birth total was zero.
