These figures consist of live births where the newborn is a resident on the day of birth.

The birth rate is calculated based on the number of women of reproductive age (15-49 years old). The mother’s age is listed as her age at the end of the year in which she gave birth.


  • The ‘per 1,000 unitis used to account for differences in population, sex distribution, etc. This makes it possible to compare periods with e.g. different populations.
  • Age specific fertility rate is the number of live births per 1,000 women in a specific age group.
  • Total fertility rate is the number of children that would be born to 1,000 women over the women’s lifetimes if:
    • The women had the exact current age-specific fertility rates throughout their reproductive lives
    • None of the women died before the age of 50.
