Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is a 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, two children per women is considered the replacement rate for a population, resulting in relative stability in terms of total population numbers.

Nutrition atlas
  • The ‘Nutrition Atlas’ has been developed as a ready reckoner on various nutritional/health indicators in the entire country collectively and at state/district level severally. As the data used in this Atlas has been sourced from varied sources with differences in data collection methods, the outcome may be viewed with caution.
