The Human Fertility Database Summary Indicators: Completed Cohort Fertility

Description

The value represents the average number of children for a cohort of women who are done with childbearing. This indicator is part of the “HFD summary indicators” (update 26/08/2019) of the Human Fertility Database (HFD).

The Human Fertility Database (HFD) is a joint project of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Rostock, Germany, and the Vienna Institute of Demography (VID) in Vienna, Austria.

It seeks to provide free and user-friendly access to detailed and high-quality data on period and cohort fertility to facilitate research on changes and inter-country differences in fertility in the past and modern era. The HFD is entirely based on official vital statistics and places great emphasis on data quality and a uniform methodology.

The years covered differ by type of indicator and country. Registration is required to access HFD data and is free of charge.
