Report: Preterm Births among Teens
This report illustrates the percentage of births among teens that were preterm, organized by race and ethnicity. Preterm births declined for each racial/ethnic group, except among non-Hispanic Asian or Pacific Islander teens, where the change was not significant. In 2014, the percentage of births that were preterm was higher among non-Hispanic black and non-Hispanic Asian or Pacific Islander teens than among other groups.
Report: Effects of Maternal Age and Age-Specific Preterm Birth Rates on Overall Preterm Birth Rates
This report highlights recent data that show, from 2007 to 2014, the preterm birth rate decreased for all age groups, and the overall birth rate for teens and women aged 20-24 years also decreased. The changing distribution of maternal age might indicate success of programs to prevent teen and unintended pregnancies.

2019 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) Results
The 2019 YRBS results present a promising picture for some behaviors and experiences among high school students; however, other areas reveal that teens are still engaging in behaviors that put them at risk. While these health risk behaviors vary by sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation and grade, the 2019 YRBS results show that there is more work to do to help all teens create lifelong healthy behaviors.
