Teen births decline 14 percent in Minnesota, report says
ALEXANDRIA, Minn. - Declining teen pregnancies in Minnesota indicate that some kids are listening when their parents have “the talk.”
Teenwise Minnesota reported the number of teen mothers fell 14 percent between 2010 and 2011. Education and human services are credited as major reasons for the drop. A 16.5 percent decrease was reported for the 18- to 19-year-old group alone; those teens are considered adults. “Teens” are between the ages of 15 to 19 for most of Teenwise’s studies.
