Abstract
This is Volume III in the Annual Vital Statistics Series produced by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SCDHEC). Teen pregnancy events in the lives of South Carolina residents over the past decade are documented in this volume. Since 2011, SC teen pregnancy data has been presented for four commonly requested age groups of adolescents: 10-19, 15-17, 18-19, and 15-19. The Office of Vital Statistics collects data on pregnancy events (live births, abortions, and reportable fetal deaths). South Carolina law requires this data to be reported to SCDHEC. Live births, fetal deaths, and abortions occurring out-of-state to South Carolina residents are also included in this report. Event information is re-allocated to the state of residence through an agreement of interstate transcript exchange. Therefore the statistics presented should be representative of live births, abortions, and fetal deaths among SC residents.
