World Fertility Data 2017

World Fertility Data 2017 presents data on age-specific fertility rates, total fertility and mean age at childbearing for 201 countries or areas of the world. The database includes data available as of November 2017 and covers the time period from 1950 to the present. Data for the time period before 1950 have been included as well, if readily available, but no systematic attempt was made to collect data prior to 1950 for all countries. The time series are available for download in Excel workbooks and are presented in online charts. This Revision supersedes previous of World Fertility Data published by the United Nations.
