Fertility

The total fertility rate (TFR) is the average number of children that a group of women would each bear if they experience the age-specific fertility rates of the calendar year in question throughout their childbearing lifespan. It provides a snapshot of the level of fertility in a particular year and does not necessarily represent the average number of children that a group of women will have over their lifetime.

Birth statistics for England and Wales are based on the details collected when births are registered. By law, births should be registered within 42 days.

The information in the table below relates to data at local authority level. Horsham local authority spans both Horsham and Mid Sussex CCG and Coastal West Sussex CCG.
