Here are the statistics broken down by demographics from the US Department of Health and Human Services:
Trends in Teen Pregnancy and Childbearing
"In 2012, there were 29.4 births for every 1,000 adolescent females ages 15-19, or 305,420 babies born to females in this age group. Nearly eighty-nine percent of these births occurred outside of marriage.
"The 2012 teen birth rate indicates a decline of six percent from 2011 when the birth rate was 31.3 per 1,000.The teen birth rate has declined almost continuously over the past 20 years. In 1991, the U.S. teen birth rate was 61.8 births for every 1,000 adolescent females, compared with 29.4 births for every 1,000 adolescent females in 2012 (see Figure 1).
"Still, the U.S. teen birth rate is higher than that of many other developed countries, including Canada and the United Kingdom.
"In 2012, 72 percent of all teen births occurred to 18- to 19-year-olds.
"Birth rates are also higher among Hispanic and black adolescents than among their white counterparts. In 2012, Hispanic adolescent females ages 15-19 had the highest birth rate (46.3 births per 1,000 adolescent females), followed by black adolescent females (43.9 births per 1,000 adolescent females) and white adolescent females (20.5 births per 1,000 adolescent females.)"
Looking at the map, the two states with the highest rate of teen pregnancies are Mississippi and Arkansas.
