Teen birth rates have fallen in Ohio and across the country, and racial disparities in those numbers have lessened, according to findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The CDC compared teen birth rates from 2006 to 2014. In Ohio, the rate fell nearly 34 percent. The latest numbers for the state show there were 26 births per 1,000 young women ages 15 to 19. That puts Ohio at just a notch above the national rate of 25.4.
