Descripción

This edition of the Demographic Observatory presents a series of fertility indicators estimated and projected by fiveyear periods. The indicators were formulated as input for the national population estimates and projections for the 20 countries of Latin America for the period 1950-2050.The figures in this publication constitute a revision of those presented in No. 68 of the Demographic Bulletin of July 2001.The methodological notes of this edition include a summary of the methodology used in the fertility estimates and projections, as well as a description of the data sources used for each country.In customary fashion, the Demographic Observatory features an analytical chapter that offers a general overview of the information presented. Table 1a includes the total population of the 20 countries of Latin America (plus the population of the Caribbean countries and territories) between 1950 and 2050. Table 1b presents the population for all those countries and territories by calendar year, for the period 1990-2015. Tables 2 to 16 show a series of demographic indicators, including growth rates, total fertility rates, crude birth and mortality rates, life expectancy at birth and the infant mortality rate. Tables 17 to 37 display fertility indicators by mothers' age for each of the 20 countries of Latin America.Tables in: http://www.cepal.org/celade/proyecciones/basedatos_BD.htm
