Being first in something is not all that common for Mississippi. And this one is no cause for celebration.
Unfortunately, what we’re first in is the nation’s highest teen birth rate. The Mississippi rate is more than 60 percent higher than the national average, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
Across the state last year, there were 7,310 births to teenagers (classed as ages 10 through 19) and 88 percent of those were to unwed mothers.
