Teen Pregnancies, Abortions Drop From 1990 to 2004: CDC
Date:4/14/2008

liminary birth statistics compiled by the CDC and were based on 99 percent of all births in 2006.

"The finding on teen pregnancy was a surprise," Ventura told HealthDay. "Even though the rate of decline had slowed down, we didn't expect an increase."

She added that it was "too soon to say if the increased birth rate among teens is a trend. It could be just a one-year blip, or the start of a turning point."

The new report released Monday also included these findings:

  • Almost half (45 percent) of the 6.4 million pregnancies in 2004 occurred among unmarried women. Pregnancy totals for unmarried women increased from more than 2.7 million in 1990 to more than 2.8 million in 2004.
  • Pregnancy totals among married women declined from 4.1 million in 1990 to 3.5 million in 2004.
  • The average American woman is expected to have 3.2 pregnancies in her lifetime at current pregnancy rates; black and Hispanic women are expected to have 4.2 pregnancies each, compared with 2.7 for non-Hispanic white women.
  • Seventy-five percent of pregnancies among married women culminated in a live birth in 2004, while 19 percent ended in fetal loss, and 6 percent ended in abortion. For unmarried women, slightly more than half of pregnancies (51 percent) ended in live birth, an increase from 43 percent in 1990. Thirty-five percent of these pregnancies ended in abortion and 13 percent ended in fetal loss.
  • More than two-thirds of pregnancies for non-Hispanic white women (67 percent) and Hispanic women (69 percent) and half of pregnancies to non-Hispanic black women ended in live birth.
  • More than one-third (37 percent) of pregnancies for black women ended in abortion, compared with 12 percent for non-Hispanic white women and 19 percent for Hispanic women.
