January 8, 2013
"For the fourth consecutive year, teen birth rates in South Carolina have declined, once again reaching an all-time low. Information released by the Department of Health and Environmental Control shows a teen birth rate for 15-19 year olds of 39.1 per 1,000, correlating to an 8% decline from 2010-2011. Since 1994, the same year the SC Campaign was established, the state has seen a 39% decline in the teen birth rate."
