Age-specific fertility rate


The fertility rate (by age) is the ratio of the number of live births recorded during a civil year for women of a given age to the average number of women of that age in that civil year.

The indicator is calculated as follows: Number of births to women aged X (actual age) divided by the average permanent female population aged X years. The indicator is calculated for women aged 15 to 49 and is shown per thousand.
