This chart shows the patterns of height (length) and weight for children from birth to 36 months. The left and right sides of the chart show heights in the upper section and weights in the lower section.
Find your child's height on the left side, and read horizontally across until you reach the vertical line for your child's age. For example, a girl 30 inches (76 cm) tall and 12 months old is just above the 75% percentile.
The chart is taken directly from the Centers for Disease Control National Center for Health Statistics. Birth rates for teenagers fell for all race and Hispanic origin groups from 1991 through 2011 with much of the decline from 2007 through 2011. Declines in teen birth rates from 2007 through 2011 were generally largest in the Southeast, Mountain and Pacific areas, and in the upper Midwest. Birth rates for non-Hispanic white teenagers fell at least 20% in 30 states from 2007 through 2011.
The largest declines in birth rates for non-Hispanic black teenagersa€”30% or morea€”occurred in eight states from 2007 through 2011. Declines in birth rates among Hispanic teenagers were the largest of any group, with rates falling by at least 40% in 22 states and DC. Teen birth rates fell at least 15% for all but two states during 2007a€“2011a€”the most recent period of sustained decline; rates fell 30% or more in seven states.
Declines in rates were steepest for Hispanic teenagers, averaging 34% for the United States, followed by declines of 24% for non-Hispanic black teenagers and 20% for non-Hispanic white teenagers. The long-term difference between birth rates for non-Hispanic black and Hispanic teenagers has essentially disappeared, and by 2011 their rates were similar. Rates for Hispanic teenagers fell 40% or more in 22 states and the District of Columbia (DC); rates dropped at least 30% in 37 states and DC. Teen birth rates fell steeply in the United States from 2007 through 2011, resuming a decline that began in 1991 but was briefly interrupted in 2006 and 2007.
The rates for non-Hispanic white, Hispanic, and American Indian or Alaska Native (AIAN) teenagers fell 50% or more during these two decades, while rates for non-Hispanic black and Asian or Pacific Islander (API) teenagers declined at least 60%.
In the recent 2007a€“2011 period, the largest decline (34%) was reported for Hispanic teenagers. The rate for Hispanic teenagers was 21% higher than the rate for non-Hispanic black teenagers in 2007, but by 2011 the rate for Hispanic teenagers was just 4% higher. The smallest declines, ranging from 15% to 19%, were reported for 12 states and the District of Columbia (DC).
The overall birth rate for non-Hispanic white teenagers dropped 20% from 2007 through 2011 (Figure 3). Rates fell by 20% or more in 30 states that were generally located in the Pacific and Mountain areas and scattered in other sections of the country.

Declines ranging from 10% to 19% were reported for states scattered in the Midwest and Northeast. Among the 14 states with the largest declines in non-Hispanic white teenage birth rates, 6 had rates above the U.S. Declines of 20% or more were reported for non-Hispanic black teenagers during 2007a€“2011 in 34 states located in the Southwest, upper Midwest, and Southeast (Figure 4). In states with at least 100 births to non-Hispanic black teenagers, the largest declines, between 41% and 50%, were observed for Minnesota, Nebraska, and Rhode Island. The 21 states with the largest rate declines included only 6 states with rates above the U.S. Rates fell 40% or more for Hispanic teenagers in 22 states and DC from 2007 through 2011 (Figure 5). The largest declines were measured mainly in the Southeast and a few states in other regions.
Declines amounted to at least 25% in all but five states where the changes were not significant or could not be calculated. Six of the 10 states with the largest declines in birth rates for Hispanic teenagers were states with rates well above the national ratea€”49.4 births per 1,000 women aged 15a€“19 for this group. The three largest population groups experienced declines in their teen birth rates of 20% to 34% at the national level from 2007 through 2011.
The race and Hispanic origin-specific birth rates by state and the population composition of states by race and Hispanic origin both contribute to state variations in the teen birth rate as well as to variations in the trends.

If teen birth rates by age and race and Hispanic origin of mother had remained at their 1991 levels, an estimated 3.6 million more births to teenagers would have occurred from 1992 through 2011 (6,7).
Birth rates also are down significantly for API and AIAN teenagers, though small numbers preclude analysis of changes by state for these groups. The vital statistics natality file includes information for all births occurring in the United States.

Teenagers in the United States: Sexual activity, contraceptive use, and childbearing, 2006a€“2010 National Survey of Family Growth.

The number of births to teenagers aged 15a€“19 also fell from 2007 to 2011, by 26% to 329,797 in 2011. The declines in teen birth rates have been attributed to a number of factors, including strong teen pregnancy prevention messages (8a€“10). The natality files include information on a wide range of maternal and infant demographic and health characteristics for babies born in the United States. Births to teenagers are at elevated risk of low birthweight, preterm birth, and of dying in infancy compared with infants born to women aged 20 and over (1a€“3), and they are associated with significant public costs, estimated at $10.9 billion annually (4).
The latest data from the National Survey of Family Growth show increased use of contraception at first sex and the use of dual methods of contraception (that is, condoms and hormonal methods) among sexually active female and male teenagers (11).
Thus, states with large proportions of Hispanic or non-Hispanic black teenagers would be expected to have higher overall teen birth rates. The natality files are available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics' (NCHS) website.
Postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States for July 1, 2011 and national intercensal estimates of the resident population of the United States for July 1, 2000a€“July 1, 2009, by year, county, single year of age, bridged race, Hispanic origin, and sex. Recent trends by state and race and Hispanic origin are illustrated using the most current available data from the National Vital Statistics System. Recent data from the Youth Risk Behavioral Surveillance Survey also show wide variation across states in the extent to which sexually active teenagers are using the most effective methods of contraception (12). These patterns might also be expected to influence the recent trends in rates by race and Hispanic origin across states.
Data for 2010 and earlier years may also be accessed from the interactive data access tool, VitalStats.
Rates for 2007 are based on newly released and revised intercensal population estimates based on the 2000 and 2010 censuses (1,16). Previous reports have explored the variations in rates across states within race and Hispanic groups (6,14,15).
This report shows the extent to which declines in birth rates by race and Hispanic origin have varied across states. In general, declines have been widespread across all states, with the largest declines generally observed in the Southeast, Mountain, and Pacific states. Rates by state shown here may differ from rates computed on the basis of other population estimates (1).
Note that birth rates by state are not shown for groups with fewer than 20 births in the numerator.
