(Wyo.)- Wyoming Teen Pregnancy Rates Decline
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming's teen birthrate dropped by nearly 15 percent between 2007 and 2012, but officials are unclear as to why.
Ashley Busacker is a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Wyoming assignee.
She says the decline could be because of strong pregnancy prevention messages or increased use of birth control. Her office will study the issue in coming months.
Busacker says that a more in depth analysis of the birth certificate data and of the pregnancy risk assessment monitoring system will be done to maybe get a better picture of teen births in Wyoming.
