Total Fertility Rate and Reproduction Rate

URL: https://data.gov.sg/dataset/010e61e1-b2fd-4df3-af72-01fc951e9ee6/resource/f63d5535-f094-42d0-b7ff-dbcbccb97928/download/total-fertility-rate-and-reproduction-rate.csv

Total Fertility Rate refers to the average number of live-births each female would have during her reproductive years if she were to experience the age-specific fertility rates prevailing during the period. It is derived by aggregating the age-specific fertility rates of females in each of the reproductive ages for a specific year.

Gross Reproduction Rate refers to the average number of daughters each female would have during her reproductive years if she were to experience the age-specific fertility rates prevailing during the period.

Net Reproduction Rate refers to the average number of daughters each female would have during her reproductive years if she were to experience the age-specific fertility and mortality rates prevailing during the period. It is a refinement of the gross reproduction rate, and is also the measure of replacement of population.

Data prior to 1980 pertain to total population. Data from 1980 onwards pertain to resident population (i.e. Singapore citizens and permanent residents).
