Total fertility (average number of children per woman)

Note: These maps display estimates of total fertility for all countries of the world as well as probabilistic projections of total fertility, which have been carried out using a Bayesian Hierarchical Model (BHM). These estimates and projections have been prepared for the 2012 Revision of the World Population Prospects
