The fertility rate is the number of live births per 1,000 women in a specified year.
Age-specific fertility rate is the number of live births per 1,000 women of the same age in a specified year.
Total fertility rates is the sum of the age-specific fertility rates in a year.
The fertility rate is calculated in relation to the number of women of reproductive age (15-49 years old), more precisely in relation to the average population of women aged 15-49 as it was in April of the year following the specified year.
The mother’s age is listed as her age at the end of the year in which she gave birth.
The ‘per 1,000 unit’ is used to account for differences in population, sex distribution, etc. This makes it possible to compare periods with e.g. different populations. Total fertility rate is the number of children that would be born to 1,000 women in their lifetime if the women had the exact current age-specific fertility rates throughout their reproductive lives, and none of the women died before the age of 50.
