TUCSON (KGUN9-TV/AP) - A new study out this morning shows the teen pregnancy rate in Arizona is dropping.

The Centers for Disease Control study says Arizona saw the single largest decrease in teen births in the country. Rates fell almost 30% since 2007.

Teen pregnancy rates are now at their lowest since 1940. The CDC says the decline is due to pregnancy prevention efforts.
