Thematic Map > Birth rate - World

Loading map...

Definition: This entry gives the average annual number of births during a year per 1,000 persons in the population at midyear; also known as crude birth rate. The birth rate is usually the dominant factor in determining the rate of population growth. It depends on both the level of fertility and the age structure of the population.

Description: The map displayed here shows how Birth rate varies by country. The shade of the country corresponds to the magnitude of the indicator. The darker the shade, the higher the value.
