What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the birth rate in live births per 1,000 females aged 15-19 years.
Why this is important: 
Teen birth is of concern for the health outcomes of both the mother and the child. Pregnancy and delivery can be harmful to teenagers' health, as well as social and educational development. Babies born to teen mothers are more likely to be born preterm and/or low birth weight. Responsible sexual behavior reduces unintended pregnancies, and thus reduces the number of births to adolescent females.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 58 California counties.
