  • 1. Teenage Pregnancy By: Brittany Dickey & Savannah Strojny
  • 2. Dependent Variable • Teen Pregnancy, is pregnancy by a female, age 13 to 19, which is understood to occur in a girl who hasn’t completed her core education— secondary school—has few or no marketable skills, is financially dependent upon her parents, and/or continues to live at home and is mentally immature.
  • 3. Independent Variables • The independent variables chosen to relate to Teen Pregnancy in the United States are birth rate, abortion rate, and percent Caucasian.
  • 4. Data Table 1
  • 5. Data Table 2
  • 6. Data Table 3
  • 7. Summary • There was an obvious increase in teen pregnancy throughout the past few years. The number of abortions, births, and the percent Caucasian within pregnancies is statistically associated with teen pregnancy. The results from the regression analysis show that as the amount of abortions, Caucasians, and birth rates increase, so does the amount of teen pregnancies. The race of the teens is related to teen pregnancies as the number of abortions and births are taken into account. While we have gathered information on all races African Americans showed the highest number of teen pregnancy. If the teen however chooses abortion there will still be very difficult obstacles to overcome, and in some situations could lead to suicide. Teen pregnancy has gotten better in the United States, but is still a major problem that we have to take notice in and deal with.
