This report, developed for community members in Battle Creek (Calhoun County), Michigan, is intended to provide examples and suggestions for a comprehensive, community-based approach to preventing teenage pregnancies. While the rate of teen pregnancies has recently been on the decline throughout the U.S, the national rate of 98.7 per 1000 girls ages 15-19 is still much higher than most other Western countries, and many communities are troubled by rates that far exceed this national average.
