More good news for "la raza"...

According to a report on birth rates for different age groups released today by the National Center for Health Statistics:

"The rate for Hispanic teenagers fell to 77.4 births per 1,000, the lowest rate ever reported for this group in the two decades for which rates are available. Rates fell for all race and Hispanic origin groups between 2007 and 2008, with statistically significant declines ranging from 2 percent (for non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black teenagers) to 5 and 6 percent for Hispanic and API [Asian and Pacific Islander] teenagers."

Which hopefully will mean that more of our hermanitas will be finishing high school and looking at careers and college...
