Illegitimacy rates in the United States are estimated to be 38 percent. The rate of children born out of wedlock has doubled since 1975. It has been estimated that more than 1. 6 million babies were born to unmarried women in 2006, more than ever reported. This represents a 20 percent increase since 2002.

The illegitimacy rate in the US is approximately 3 percent to 4 percent. In recent years this percentage has been reduced through sex education in schools. This education, involving abstinence and reproductive protection, has kept the rate of pregnancy from increasing, here in the United States.
