Fewer teenagers falling pregnant in Nottingham
Latest figures show that rates of teenage pregnancy in Nottingham have more than halved in the past decade.
Back in 2006, the conception rate for under-18s stood at 73.5 per thousand, but today that number has dropped to 30.9.
The fall has been attributed to a number of factors including partnership working, better education and a drive to target areas of the city which have traditionally seen higher rates of teenage pregnancy.
The percentage improvement between 2006 and 2016 is 57.9%, with the average for all local authorities currently at 47.9%. Nottingham City is in the top 20% of most improved authorities for the period.
