Fertility rate

The fertility rate refers to the average number of children that are born to a woman, who is a member of a particular demographic population, during her reproductive years (internationally these are nominated as the ages between 15 and 44).

In 2011, South Africa’s fertility rate was at 2.42 births per woman. Incidentally, it is the lowest on the African continent.
