Teenagers are very important to any society’s future. Teenagers are the future of a
community, country, continent and the world at large. How we handle the issues of
teenagers now determines the future of the generation. Teenage pregnancy worldwide
represents a challenge that has far reaching negative economic, social, cultural and health
outcomes. It is therefore worth noting the importance placed on teenage pregnancy. This
study intends to contribute on knowledge about determinants of teenage pregnancy in
Narok County using the 2014 Kenya Demographic Health Survey data. The focus of the
study is Narok County in which highest numbers of teenage pregnancy and childbearing in
Kenya are currently reported. Logit regression analysis will be conducted to investigate the
determinants of teenage pregnancy in Narok County.
