86. Births to Unmarried Women, by Race of Child and Age of Mother

[Excludes births to nonresidents of the United States. Beginning in 1985, marital status is inferred from a comparison of the child's and parents' surnames on the birth certificate for those States that do not report on marital status. No estimates included for misstatements on birth records or failure to register births. See also Appendix III]
