- Rates are shown per 1,000 girls aged 15-19. For example, a rate of 30 per 1,000 means that 3% of teenage girls give birth that year.
- If there were fewer than 10 teen births in a county, data are hidden for that year to protect privacy.
- 2017 rates are based on preliminary vital statistics data and may change slightly. 2018 rates only are available for counties with a population greater than 100,000
- Population estimates come from Texas State Demographer. Rates vary slightly from teen birth estimates based on American Community Survey population data.
