Births: Final Data for 1997

Released on April 29, 1999, this new Department of Health and Human Services report reveals that the US birth rate has dropped to a record low, due in part to a continuing decline in the teen birth rate. The birth rate for fifteen to nineteen year-olds has declined for six straight years, falling sixteen percent between 1991 and 1997. The report, presented in .pdf format, offers a comprehensive look at birth and fertility patterns based on the latest data for the nation and each state. In addition, it addresses topics such as maternal lifestyle, medical services utilization, and infant health. References and technical notes are also provided.
