Teen Birth Rates by Race/Ethnicity: Ages 10 - 17
Monroe County, New York (2013 - 2015)
While the birth rates among younger teens (10-17 year olds) is much smaller than for older teens, the patterns are the same. For each racial/ethnic group, the rates are highest in the Focus Area and lowest in the suburbs. And while the rates across race/ethnicity within the Focus Area are fairly similar, there are large disparities elsewhere in the county between blacks/Latinas and whites.
*The Focus Area consists of eight high-poverty ZIP codes in the city of Rochester with particularly high concentration of African-Americans and Latinos. See a map of the Focus Area here.
