List of Countries and Territories by Fertility Rate


This is a list of all countries by fertility rate.

The UN TFR Ranking

The UN TFR Ranking is a list of countries by total fertility rate (TFR): the expected number of children born per woman in her child-bearing years. Figures are from the 2006 revision of the United Nations World Population Prospects report, for the period 2000-2005 and 2004-2010, using the medium assumption. Only countries/territories with a population of 100,000 or more in 2007 are included. Rank is based on 2005-2010 figure.
