Texas has the fifth highest teen birth rate in the country and ranks first for repeat teen pregnancies. The teen birth rate in Bexar County for ages 15-19 was 49 percent higher than the national rate in 2013.

The United States is at a record low for teen pregnancy rates and while Texas and Bexar County teen birth rates have declined overall, the high number of teen mothers giving birth again has remained constant in San Antonio since 2010.
