Fertility rate is projected to remain 0,5 children above the fertility in the medium variant
The average number of children a hypothetical cohort of women would have at the end of their reproductive period if they were subject during their whole lives to the fertility rates of a given period and if they were not subject to mortality. It is expressed as children per woman. A rate of 2 means that the population remains constant.
