Report Intro/Brief:
"This research brief provides the first-ever data comparing teen childbearing in rural, suburban, and urban areas nationwide and examining how this has changed over time. The results presented here are part of a broader set of analyses that will also explore how these outcomes relate to rural-urban differences in teen sexual activity and use of contraception, as well as variation in poverty and economic opportunity, availability of services, and education."
