Across Monroe County, teen birth rates have fallen considerably over the past 10 years, especially within the Focus Area* and other parts of Rochester where they have fallen over 40 percent since 2007. However, the birth rates within the city remain much higher than the suburbs, and as the subsequent charts show, there are large differences by race/ethnicity as well.
* 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.
