National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG) updates from the National Center for Health Statistics.
Dear Colleagues,
A new report, “Pregnancy Rates for U.S. Women Continue to Drop,” by Sally Curtin, Joyce Abma, Stephanie Ventura, and Stanley Henshaw, will be available tomorrow on the NCHS website http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/. This report covers pregnancy rates and pregnancy outcomes for women aged 15-44, through 2009. Descriptive tables and figures are presented by age, race/Hispanic origin, and marital status. Here are the key findings illustrated in the report:
  • The pregnancy rate for U.S. women in 2009 was 102.1 per 1,000 women aged 15–44, the lowest level in 12 years; only the 1997 rate of 101.6 has been lower in the last 30 years.
  • Rates for women under age 30 fell during 1990–2009, while rates for women aged 30 and over increased.
  • Rates for teenagers reached historic lows in 2009, including rates for the three major race and Hispanic origin groups.
  • Pregnancy rates have declined about 10% each for married and unmarried women since 1990.
  • The birth rate for married women was 72% higher than the rate for unmarried women; the abortion rate for unmarried women was almost five times higher than the rate for married women
If you have any questions about this report, please contact Sally (scurtin@cdc.gov), Joyce (jabma@cdc.gov), or Stephanie (sventura@cdc.gov).
As always, please keep an eye on NCHS’s running list of forthcoming reports that we try to update frequently: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom/calendar/2013_schedule.htm. We will of course also keep you posted on forthcoming reports of interest.
Best regards from the NSFG team:
Joyce Abma, Anjani Chandra, Casey Copen, Isaedmarie Febo-Vázquez, Kim Daniels, Jill Daugherty, Jo Jones, Gladys Martinez, and Bill Mosher
