People also tended to have bigger families back then too.

Tried to rep ya, but yes you are on the money. Even in the early 70's, teen couples had to get married or the girl went away to a home. This was before Roe vs. Wade; thus,most states didn't have legal abortion. I certainly remember.

I love the claim that people down South are better looking haha. I went to school down South, and yes there's plenty of pretty gals...but they're not any better than the chicks up here.

The Pill was available back in the late 60s, but I suppose if you were a teenager living in a small town you would have had a lot of trouble getting a script for it.

Drill down on the stats to the demographic level.
