A new government report finds teenage girls are having fewer babies.
The Centers for Disease Control says teen birth rates in the US are at their lowest since health officials started tracking the information more than 60 years ago.
Births rates in other age groups are also down.
Experts say the recession and a decline in immigration are likely reasons why teenagers are having fewer babies.
