    The study says the rate for young females increased from two-point-two per 100-thousand people in 2007 to three-point-four in 20-13.

    The rate for boys and young men also spiked from ten-point-seven to eleven-point-nine for the same number as females during the same period.

    The study, conducted by researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, did not mention the reason for the surge.

    Some experts believe the trend was ignited by the economic recession from December 2007 until June 2009.
