    Choctaw Nation sees extremely high rate of teen births

    The teen birth rate has fallen dramatically in the U.S. over the last two decades, with the exception of the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma.
    According to MSNBC, the pregnancy rate for Choctaw Nation teens between 15 and 19 years old is 36.2 per 1,000. That’s nearly twice as high as the national rate and much higher than the rate for all American Indians and Alaska Natives.
