Total Fertility Rate may be defined as average number of children that would be born to a woman if she experiences the current fertility pattern throughout her reproductive span (15-49 years). The total fertility rate is a more direct measure of the level of fertility than the birth rate, since it refers to births per woman. This indicator shows the potential for population change in a country. A TFR of 2.1 i.e., two children per women is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms of total population numbers.
The Crude Birth Rate (CBR) is defined as the number of live births per thousand population. It is usually the dominant factor in determining the rate of population growth. Primary source of data for births and deaths is the registration of births and deaths under Civil Registration System (CRS) of the Office of Registrar General, India (ORGI). Since the reporting of births under CRS is not complete, ORGI estates CBR annually through Sample Registration System, a large scale demographic Survey Conducted by them.
