The number of teenagers giving birth in Alaska is on the decline.
The rate of women ages 15 to 19 giving birth dropped from 55.6 per 1,000 women in 1995, to 38.9 births per 1,000 women in 2005, according to the state Bureau of Vital Statistics. Note that those numbers are for live births - not pregnancies, which would also include miscarriages and abortions.
If this seems like a random fact, it's for a tentative story I'm working on.
