More and more teens are officially having depression issues; in fact, depression is the number one mental health disorder in the world for both adults and teens. Teen depression doesn’t choose, gender, income, race, social status, none of that makes teens immune to depression.
There is a great chance of developing other mental health issues because of untreated depression, like the above mentioned bipolar disorder. Teen pregnancy has been an issue of major concern across the world, and it has been so since ages. Objectives - This report presents detailed pregnancy rates for teenagers 15-19 years, for 1990-2002, updating a national series of rates begun in 1976. Methods - Tabular and graphical data on pregnancies and pregnancy rates for teenagers 15-19 years by age, race, and Hispanic origin are presented and briefly described.
Results - In 2002, an estimated 757,000 pregnancies among teenagers 15-19 years resulted in 425,000 live births, 215,000 induced abortions, and 117,000 fetal losses. An estimated 757,000 pregnancies among teenagers 15-19 years ended in 2002, 9 percent fewer than in 2000 (834,000) and about one-fourth fewer than the peak number estimated for 1990, 1,017,000 (Table 1 [PDF - 33 KB]). Teenage pregnancy rates continued to decline since 2000 (the most recent year for which data were previously available), dropping 10 percent overall between 2000 and 2002. This Health e-stat summarizes the overall trends in pregnancy for teenagers 15-19 years for the years 1990-2002, updating the most recent report of pregnancy estimates that included 1990-2000 (2). Pregnancy rates for black and white non-Hispanic teenagers dropped by about 40 percent each during 1990-2002, whereas the rate for Hispanic teenagers fell about 19 percent (Table 2 [PDF - 33 KB] and Figure 4). Pregnancy rates for black teenagers were substantially higher than for white or Hispanic teenagers in 1990. Rates for all components of pregnancy among teenagers have fallen since 1990 (Table 2 [PDF - 33 KB]).
This report was prepared in the Division of Vital Statistics (DVS) under the general direction of Charles J. The pregnancy estimates in this report and previous reports from this series are the sums of live births, induced abortions, and fetal losses. Live births - Data presented in this report are based on information reported on birth certificates filed for all births in the United States. Induced abortions - Abortion data in this report are national estimates based on abortion surveillance information collected from most states by the Centers for Disease Control and Preventiona€™s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), which are adjusted to national totals compiled by The Guttmacher Institute (AGI) from their surveys of all known abortion providers (7,8,9).
Fetal losses - Information on fetal losses in this report is based on cycles 3 through 6 of the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG), conducted in 1982, 1988, 1995, and 2002 by NCHS (10,11). The rates in this report are based on revised population estimates consistent with the 2000 census.
In computing birth rates for the Hispanic population, births with origin of mother not stated are included with non-Hispanic births rather than being distributed.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death among 15- to 20-year olds, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
Seventy-nine percent of teenage motor vehicle crash deaths in 2012 were passenger vehicle occupants. Fifty-three percent of motor vehicle crash deaths among teenagers in 2012 occurred on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
In 2012, 54 percent of the deaths of teenage passengers in passenger vehicles occurred in vehicles driven by another teenager.
In 2012, belt use among fatally injured passenger vehicle drivers ages 16-19 (42 percent) was higher than among fatally injured drivers ages 20-29 (37 percent) but lower than among drivers 30 and older combined (49 percent). Among passenger vehicle drivers ages 16-19 involved in fatal crashes in 2012, 48 percent were involved in single-vehicle crashes. Among fatally injured teenage drivers in 2012, females were less likely than males to have high BACs.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety released a report in May 2012 that showed that the risk of 16- or 17-year old drivers being killed in a crash increases with each additional teenage passenger in the vehicle.
The Colorado Teen Driving Alliance's new online parent course providing step-by-step instructions on how parents can support their teens through Colorado's Graduated Driver Licensing laws. From 2004 to 2011, rates of motor vehicle crash deaths among 15- to 19-year-olds in Colorado dropped more than 67 percent. Inexperience was the contributing factor to approximately 12 percent of all teen crashes in 2011 in Colorado. Teen drivers represent nearly 6% of licensed Colorado drivers, but they account for more than 11% of all traffic deaths in the state. A 2013 survey of 738 parents of teens throughout Colorado showed only 6.4 percent of parents could accurately identify components of graduated drivers licensing laws, including curfews, passenger restrictions and seat belt requirements. The most comprehensive research ever conducted into crash videos of teen drivers has found significant evidence that distracted driving is likely much more serious a problem than previously known, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Researchers analyzed the six seconds leading up to a crash in nearly 1,700 videos of teen drivers taken from in-vehicle event recorders.
According to new research by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), many teenagers are driving vehicles that don't offer good crash protection and lack important safety technology.
In a national survey of parents of teen drivers, 83 percent of those who bought a vehicle for their teenagers said they bought it used.
A separate IIHS study shows that teenagers killed in crashes are more likely than adults to have been behind the wheel of small vehicles and older vehicles. Birth rates for ages 15a€“19 declined to historic lows in 2010 in all racial and ethnic groups, but disparities remain.
If the 1991 birth rates prevailed, there would have been an estimated 3.4 million additional births to teenagers from 1992 through 2010.
Teen birth rates by age and race and Hispanic origin were lower in 2010 than ever reported in the United States. Teen childbearing has been generally on a long-term decline in the United States since the late 1950s (1a€“3). The 2010 rate was 44 percent below the recent peak in 1991, and 64 percent lower than the all-time high level of 96.3 recorded during the baby boom year of 1957 (1). Birth rates fell from 2009 to 2010 for teenagers in age groups 10a€“14, 15a€“17, and 18a€“19. The number of babies born to women aged 15a€“19 was 367,752 in 2010, a 10-percent decline from 2009 (409,802), and the fewest reported in more than 60 years (322,380 in 1946) (1,3) (Figure 2). The 2010 total of births to teenagers was 43 percent lower than the peak recorded in 1970 (644,708). Rates declined by 9 percent for non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black teenagers, by 12 percent for American Indian or Alaska Native (AIAN) and Hispanic teenagers, and by 13 percent for Asian or Pacific Islander (API) teenagers from 2009 to 2010 (3) (Figure 3). The impact of the decline in the teen birth rate on the number of births to teenagers over the nearly two-decade period, 1992a€“2010, is substantial. These estimated additional births also take into account the rise in the female teen population as well as changes in the female teen population composition during this period.
Rates tended to be highest in the South and Southwest and lowest in the Northeast and Upper Midwest, a pattern that has persisted for many years (1,8). Some of the variation across states reflects variation in population composition within states by race and Hispanic origin (data not shown) (1,8). The widespread significant declines in teen childbearing that began after 1991 have strengthened in recent years.
The impact of strong pregnancy prevention messages directed to teenagers has been credited with the birth rate declines (9a€“11).


Teen birth rate: The number of births to women aged 15a€“19 (or other teen age group) per 1,000 women aged 15a€“19 (or other teen age group). Estimated additional teen births: The cumulative difference between the expected numbers of teen births based on the 1991 age-, race-, and Hispanic origin-specific rates prevailing from 1992 through 2010 and the observed numbers of teen births. The additional number of teen births that would have been expected if the 1991 birth rates had continued from 1992 through 2010 was estimated by applying the 1991 teen birth rates by age, race, and Hispanic origin of mother to the estimated population of women for the same age, race, and Hispanic origin groups for each year from 1992 to 2010, summing the annual expected number, and subtracting the observed number of teen births for each year from 1992 to 2010.

Perhaps you’re curious to what percentage of teens try and abuse drugs?In studies there seems to be a clear correlation between age and drug use. Girls have reported to have more issues with depression, but they are better at dealing with it and seeking help, while boys, although in smaller numbers, have a harder time dealing with depression.
A very alarming teen depression fact is that one out of three teens won’t get any help. The impact here is not just on the population but also on the associated health risks through other related issues like abortion, mental trauma, and lack of medical care.
Information on teenage pregnancies by pregnancy outcome is presented, including complete counts of live births and estimates of induced abortions and fetal losses. The 2002 total included 425,000 live births and an estimated 215,000 induced abortions and 117,000 fetal losses. Estimates of numbers and rates are presented in Tables 1 and 2, and trends are illustrated in Figures 1-4. Pregnancy rates for white and black non-Hispanic teenagers declined fairly steadily through the period 1990-2002; the decline for Hispanic teenagers began after 1994. By 2002, the rates for black and Hispanic teenagers were very similar and were each more than two and one-half times the rate for non-Hispanic white teenagers (Figure 4). The birth rate dropped 28 percent from 1990 to 2002, whereas the abortion rate declined 46 percent.

Postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States as of July 1, 2005, by year, state and county, age, bridged race, sex, and Hispanic origin (vintage 2005).
From single-race reporting to multiple-race reporting: Using imputation methods to bridge the transition. Data are provided to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) through the Vital Statistics Cooperative Program. In 2002, the NCCDPHP abortion surveillance system collected data on abortions by age for 47 states, the District of Columbia, and New York City.
This information comes from the pregnancy histories collected for each woman in the NSFG samples. Data in this report are tabulated by the race and Hispanic origin of the woman for all years. National studies of graduated licensing found that strong laws were associated with substantially lower fatal crash rates and substantially lower insurance claim rates among young teen drivers covered by the laws. Since 1975 teenage crash deaths have decreased more among males (72 percent) than among females (56 percent). They comprised 10 percent of passenger vehicle (cars, pickups, SUVs, and vans) occupant deaths among all ages, 6 percent of pedestrian deaths, 3 percent of motorcyclist deaths, 11 percent of bicyclist deaths and 13 percent of all-terrain vehicle rider deaths. The others were pedestrians (10 percent), motorcyclists (5 percent), bicyclists (3 percent), riders of all-terrain vehicles (1 percent) and people in other kinds of vehicles (2 percent). Among fatally injured 16-19 year-old occupants, belt use among passengers (30 percent) was considerably lower than among drivers (42 percent). Among fatally injured passenger vehicle drivers ages 16-17, 18 percent of males and 10 percent of females had BACs at or above 0.08 percent.
The risk increases 44 percent with one passenger; it doubles with two passengers, and quadruples with three or more passengers.
The unprecedented video analysis finds that distraction was a factor in nearly 6 out of 10 moderate-to-severe teen crashes.
The results showed that distraction was a factor in 58 percent of all crashes studied, including 89 percent of road-departure crashes and 76 percent of rear-end crashes.
To help guide parents toward safer choices, IIHS has compiled its first-ever list of recommended used vehicles for teens. With that reality in mind, the IIHS has compiled a list of affordable used vehicles that meet important safety criteria for teen drivers.
Among fatally injured drivers ages 15-17 in 2008-12, 29 percent were in minicars or small cars, while 20 percent of fatally injured drivers ages 35-50 were.
This feature, which helps a driver maintain control of the vehicle on curves and slippery roads, reduces risk on a level comparable to safety belts. At a minimum, that means good ratings in the IIHS moderate overlap front test, acceptable ratings in the IIHS side crash test and four or five stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). By creating an environment where teens have the information, skills and resources they need to make healthy decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and act on these decisions, the program aims to help teens avoid unintended pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If the teen birth rates observed in 1991 had not declined through 2010 as they did, there would have been an estimated 3.4 million additional births to teens during 1992a€“2010.
Teen birth rates by state vary significantly, reflecting in part differences in the population composition of states by race and Hispanic origin.
If the 1991 rates had continued to prevail from 1992 through 2010, there would have been an additional 3.4 million births to women aged 15a€“19 in the United States (with nearly 1 million of those additional births occurring between 2008 and 2010) (Figure 4). From 1992 through 2010, the population of teenagers grew 28 percent overall, while the Hispanic teen population increased 110 percent. The teen birth rate dropped 17 percent from 2007 through 2010, a record low, and 44 percent from 1991.
Recently released data from the National Survey of Family Growth, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), have shown increased use of contraception at first initiation of sex and use of dual methods of contraception (that is, condoms and hormonal methods) among sexually active female and male teenagers. The vital statistics natality files include information for all births occurring in the United States. Emerging answers 2007: Research findings on programs to reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

To better understand this problem we will present you with some statistics and facts about teen depression. Seeing that over 80% of teens with depression issues can be treated that is a very high number. Let’s have a look at some of the shocking, alarming and surprising facts and stats on teen pregnancy. The estimate for 2002 represents a record low for the Nation, the fewest reported since this series of national pregnancy estimates began in 1976 (1,2).


The estimated rate for 1990, 116.8 pregnancies per 1,000 women aged 15-19 years, was the highest ever reported over the period 1976-2002. More detailed data on the changes and variations in pregnancies and pregnancy rates for all females 10-44 years of age will be presented in a forthcoming report. During 1990-2000, the rate fell about 4 percent per year while during 2000-02, the rate dropped 6.5 percent annually. Pregnancy rates for both age groups in 2002 are record lows for the Nation since this series of rates began in 1976 (1, 2). Details on the data elements collected in the birth certificate file are discussed in previous reports (5,6).
The proportions of recent pregnancies (excluding induced abortions) ending in fetal loss in the years preceding each survey are used to compile estimated fetal loss rates.
Hispanic population are underestimates of the true rates to the extent that the births with origin of mother not stated (0.8 percent in 2004) were actually to Hispanic mothers (6). Strong restrictions on nighttime driving and teen passengers, as well as raising the licensing age, reduced rates of fatal crashes and insurance collision claims. Note that belt use among those fatally injured is not always accurately recorded, but it gives an indication of relative belt use rates in serious crashes by age group. Among fatally injured drivers ages 18-19, 30 percent of males and 17 percent of females had BACs at or above 0.08 percent. Eighty-two percent of the young teen drivers were in vehicles that were at least 6 years old, compared with 77 percent of those in the adult group.
By comparison, the number of non-Hispanic white teenagers increased 8 percent and non-Hispanic black teenagers increased 37 percent. The natality files include information on a wide range of maternal and infant demographic and health characteristics for babies born in the United States.
Rates for young teenagers declined relatively more than for older teenagers throughout this 12-year period. The most recent year for which these estimates can be prepared is 2002, because more current national estimates of abortions are not available. The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy recently estimated that $9.1 billion in public funding was expended on teenage childbearing in 2004 (4). Among age subgroups, pregnancy rates fell for all race and Hispanic origin groups between 2000 and 2002, except for Hispanic teenagers 18-19 years whose rate was unchanged. Since 2000, these two trends have been similar with annual declines of about 5 percent for each. The numbers of abortions published by NCCDPHP tend to be lower than the numbers published by AGI (7). Data from the last four NSFG cycles have been combined in this way to provide statistical reliability because of small numbers of pregnancies especially for teenagers.
Pregnancy estimates cannot be prepared for other races because abortion data are not collected in the necessary detail. Moreover, childbearing by teenagers continues to be a matter of public concern because of the elevated health risks for teen mothers and their infants (5,6). The birth rate has continued to fall since 2002, and has now declined 33 percent from 1990 through 2005 (5). For example, the total number of abortions reported by NCCDPHP was about 20 percent lower in 2000 than reported by AGI for the same reporting areas (7,8).
The estimates for 1990-2000 in this report have been revised to incorporate the combined fetal loss estimates from Cycles 3 through 6 of the NSFG; previous estimates used data from Cycle 5 only (1,2).
In addition, significant public costs are associated with teen childbearing, estimated at $10.9 billion annually (7). Data for 2009 and earlier years may also be accessed from the interactive data access tool, VitalStats. Rates for 2001a€“2009 have been revised on the basis of population estimates based on the 2000 and 2010 censuses, to provide more accurate data for the years since 2000 (14,15).
This demonstrates that teenagers are in the most “at risk” age group for drug dependency and use. Overall, four in seven teenage pregnancies ended in a live birth in 2002, two in seven in induced abortion, and about one in seven in a fetal loss.
The fetal loss figures are estimates, and variations reflect in part the extent to which pregnancies are recognized especially at very early gestation periods. The most current data available from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS), the 2010 preliminary file, are used to illustrate the recent trends and variations in teen childbearing.
If the 1991 rates had prevailed through the years 1992a€“2010, there would have been an estimated 3.4 million additional births to teenagers during that period. The pace of decline continued in recent years: For the 2000-2002 period, the rate dropped about 5 percent per year, compared with an average decline of about 3 percent per year during 1990-2000.
Miller, Information Design and Publishing Staff, Office of Information Services; graphics produced by Tommy C. Despite this, the NSFG data are preferable to vital statistics reports of fetal losses, because vital statistics data are generally limited to losses occurring at gestations of 20 weeks or more, whereas NSFG data include all gestations. The vast majority of fetal losses occur early in pregnancy before the reporting requirements for fetal losses are in effect. Rates by state shown here may differ from rates computed on the basis of other population estimates (1,3).
Almost a quarter (22.5%) will try painkillers first, using them other than how was intended. In 2008 there were a recorded 7.0 million persons aged 12 years or older that were dependent or addicted to illicit drugs.
Part of the problem with drug use or abuse, especially in teens, is that the user simply does not see their drug use as a problem.
As such, they consistently are in denial about the effects that their drug use has on various aspects of their lives.
In NYC, about one in every 10 teens is uninsured, and almost three out of every 10 young people are living below the poverty line.
This makes it harder to demonstrate the need for them to stop or minimize their drug use, because they’re simply not aware of the negative consequences. These numbers are even higher in the Bronx, which ranks as the poorest county in New York state. Because teens are such a vulnerable age, it’s really important that parents keep an eye on their teen’s health and look out for any noticeable differences.
Reducing the Risk has been shown in research studies to be an effective curriculum for educating teens about the consequences of being sexually active, improving students’ negotiation skills in relationships, delaying sexual initiation, increasing contraceptive and condom use among teens that are sexually active and involving parents in discussing sexual health with their teen.
The project is partnering with several clinics that serve youth in the South Bronx, including Health and Hospitals Corporation (HHC) facilities. A partnership with parents, community-based organizations, high schools, community- and school-based clinics, government agencies, and youth-serving organizations will help assure that teens receive clear, consistent health messages, and the support and resources they need to make healthy decisions.Bronx Teens Connection is one of nine national programs funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in collaboration with the federal Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health (OASH) Office of Adolescent Health, as part of the President's Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative. The program is based at the Bronx District Public Health Office and includes as its partners local schools, clinics, and community-based organizations and several City agencies. This funding is administered by the Fund for Public Health in New York, a private non-profit organization that supports innovative initiatives of the New York City Health Department.
