Given their disproportionate share of teen births (over 1/3 of all teen births in 2019 were to Latinx/e teens), the drop in the Latinx/e birth rate accounts for a substantial portion of the recent decline in the national teen birth rate. Beyond birth data reports, however, there has been no formal demographic accounting of these unprecedented declines that considers the vast heterogeneity and significant changes in the Latinx/e population. We leverage 25-years of birth data from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) (1995-2019) to first determine if declines in Latinx/e teen birth rates have been widespread or exclusive to particular sub-groups (cross-classified by region-of-origin, nativity, and age).

Title of Talk: A New Regime of Latinx/e Teenage Childbearing?: the Role of Demographic Shifts by Nativity, Region-of-Origin, and Age

Abstract: Declines in adolescent childbearing in the U.S have been widespread and, in recent years, have been particularly large among Latinx/e adolescents. Given their disproportionate share of teen births (over 1/3 of all teen births in 2019 were to Latinx/e teens), the drop in the Latinx/e birth rate accounts for a substantial portion of the recent decline in the national teen birth rate. Beyond birth data reports, however, there has been no formal demographic accounting of these unprecedented declines that considers the vast heterogeneity and significant changes in the Latinx/e population. We leverage 25-years of birth data from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) (1995-2019) to first determine if declines in Latinx/e teen birth rates have been widespread or exclusive to particular sub-groups (cross-classified by region-of-origin, nativity, and age). Second, we employ decomposition analysis for two time points (1995 and 2019) to adjudicate between different explanations for the observed declines, i.e. change in population composition or change in risk within sub-groups. In doing so, we hope to deepen what is all too often an overly general conversation that ignores the complex heterogeneity in the Latinx/e population, particularly around family formation processes and behaviors.
