“America’s Youth: Transitions to Adulthood,” a report from the Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), compares the current generation of youth in the United States to youth in 2000, 1990, and 1980.
This NCHS Data Brief presents several key demographic, maternal, and infant health indicators by race and Hispanic origin, using 2014 final birth data. The number of births in the United States increased slightly in 2014, with rates rising for non-Hispanic white and Asian or Pacific Islander women. There were historic lows for Hispanic women and American Indian or Alaska Native women. In 2014, teen childbearing fell to another historic low for each race and Hispanic origin group.
