NYC's Teen Pregnancy Rate Has Declined Dramatically Over Past Decade

WNYC - The Brian Lehrer Show: Teen Pregnancy Down

NYC Health Commissioner Thomas Farley talks about why the city’s teen pregnancy rate has been on the decline over the past decade, and why the Bronx still has the highest rate in the country. . . .

______________________

Like the CDC data on sex among Latino/a youth, New York City's experience seems to contradict claims that providing teens with contraception will lead to increased sex, since the decline in pregnancy is attributable both to decreased rates of teen sex and increased use of contraception by sexually active teens.
