considering the fact that hiv rates among black women (including those in the teen age group) is on the decline as well, i can't help but to believe that black women are engaging in less risky sexual relationships overall. i love it!

CDC says...

The average age at first birth increased for all racial and ethnic groups between 1990 and 2006 with increases ranging from 0.6 years for American Indian or Alaska Native (AIAN) women to 1.7 years for Asian or Pacific Islander (API) women.

In 2006, API women had the oldest average age at first birth (28.5 years), whereas AIAN women had the youngest (21.9 years); a difference of 6.6 years. The average age at first birth for non-Hispanic white women (26.0 years) was older than the average for the U.S. population (25.0 years) while those for non-Hispanic black (22.7 years) and Hispanic women (23.1 years) were younger (Figure 4)

So basically, all women are having their babies later...black women are still having their babies earlier (at age 22.7) than the average US woman (at age 25).

According to the National Poverty Center (in 2010), black children make up the largest group of children under age 18 that are living in poverty.

Of all children under 18 living in poverty, 12.4% are white (non-hispanic), 38.2% are black, 35% are hispanic, and 13.6% are asian.

Just pointing out that while we may have won one battle, we certainly haven't won the war. We've got our work cut out for us.

Sorry if you don't feel it's relevant or helpful information.
