Age-specific fertility rates for women aged 10 to 14, 15 to 19 and under 20, 2000 to 2017
|Unit of measurement||
Birth rate per 1,000 women in age group
Age specific fertility rates are calculated by dividing the number of live birth to mothers in each age group by the mid-year female population. Rates for women aged 10 to 14 are calculated using the female population aged 10 to 14, while rates for women aged 15 to 19 are calculated using the female population aged 15 to 19. Rates for women under 20 are calculated using the sum of the female population aged 10 to 14, and the sum of the female population aged 15 to 19.
For the 10 to 14 age group, rates were calculated using births to mothers aged 14 and under, as this was the most detailed data available, and therefore could potentially include births to mothers aged under 10. The potential number of these births cannot be revealed for confidentiality reasons. Data follows the UN specification for this indicator. This indicator has been identified in collaboration with topic experts.
