Teen Pregnancy Rates

New Zealand has the second highest rate of teen births compared to other OECD countries. In New Zealand, as similar to other countries, a pattern of increased teen births was shown during the mid-2000s, followed by a decline. This pattern would suggest that influences on the teen birth rate are widespread and not specific to New Zealand.

The number of teen births continues to decline in New Zealand with the birth rate in 2013 being 23.8 births per 1,000 women aged 15-19 years. The proportion of teens registered births has also declined, with teen mothers accounting for 5.9 per cent of births in 2013. This is the lowest recorded percentage accounted for teen mothers and 0.8% below the level in 2001 (6.7 per cent).

In 2013, Maori teen birth rate was 53.1 births per 1,000 women, down from 72.2 births in 2000. Although, Rangatahi Maori (teens) birth rate continues to be still higher than the national rate, but both rates are declining with the gap between narrowing (University of Waikato, 2015).
