Teen Pregnancy

Oklahoma teens are ranked number two in the United States among births to 15 to 19 year olds at a rate of 47.3 per 1,000 women and girls. Oklahoma teens also rank number three among 15 to 17 year olds. Teen pregnancy rates are much higher among teens in foster care than among the general population. The children of teen mothers are twice as likely to be placed in foster care as their peers born to older parents.
