      • Factors determining birth rate
        • Proportion of women who are of childbearing age
        • How fertile they are
      • Average number of children women will have during their fertile years
      • All time low in 2011 of 1.63 children per woman
      • 1.74 in  2017
      • In 1964 it was 2.95
      • These reflect that women are remaining childless than in the past and that women are postponing children
