Who Fertility Statistics Are

To get a good idea of who fertility statistics are, you can search the internet. You can look up the World Fertility Report from the UN, the Eurostat website, or the Wikipedia. Each institution has its own definition for reproductive life, but the most common one is 15 to 49 years. The average fertility rate is the number of children a woman has during her lifetime. The UN, Eurostat, and Wikipedia all report the data in terms of the average number of children per woman.

Total fertility rate

The Total fertility rate (TFR) is the average number of children born to a woman in her lifetime, and is a common metric used by demographers. It is important to note that the number of children born to a woman during a given year is different from the number of children born to her over the course of her lifetime. This difference is important for understanding the demographic trend, which has largely been declining since the 1960s.

Net reproduction rate

Net reproduction rate is the average number of daughters born to each woman. This statistic is closely related to gross reproduction rate but includes female mortality. If the net reproduction rate is one, then each generation of women is producing enough daughters to replace themselves. However, this number does not reflect the rate of births to young girls. A woman’s fertility rate is affected by her age. The average number of daughters per woman should be more than one if she is planning to have more than one child.

Birth rate

The global fertility rate has decreased significantly over the past four decades. The TFR for the world was 4.5 in 1970, and is currently at 2.5. While the TFR of developed countries has been increasing, that decline is not as severe as it has been for developing nations. While many factors have contributed to this decline, including increased access to contraception and the expansion of education, some of the factors are more complex and less predictable. These factors, along with changing values and preferences, tend to influence fertility rates.

Age at first birth

A common source of uncertainty in the age at first birth statistic is women’s misreporting of their date of birth. Women who begin childbearing at an early age may overstate their age due to social norms. Similarly, interviewers may overestimate a woman’s age based on her childbearing status. Fortunately, the completeness of birth date reporting in the DHS surveys has been improving over time.

Secular values

While the birth rate of people who identify as secular is below the replacement level in Western societies, the birth rate of religious fundamentalists is above it. This means that religious fundamentalism is growing in power and will acquire considerable political power. As a result, secular liberals must do their part to maintain secular values and to increase the number of births in the world. In the meantime, we can expect the birth rate of people who identify as secular to fall by two percent.

In vitro fertilization success rates

If you are planning to have a baby, you will probably want to know how much chance you have of success. The average success rate of in vitro fertilization is 55% for women younger than 35. That percentage goes down as a woman ages. However, these success rates are only for fresh or frozen embryo transfers. That means you have a chance to conceive if your eggs are mature enough. Here’s how it works.
