Crude birth rate of Canada 1860-2020

In Canada, the crude birth rate in 1860 was forty live births per thousand people, meaning that four percent of the population had been born in that year. From this point until the turn of the century, the crude birth rate decreases gradually, to just over thirty births per thousand. Over the next twenty years, this number hovers just below thirty, and thereafter it decreases much more rapidly than before, to 20.7 in 1940, before Canada's baby boom in the 1940s, 50s and 60s, where the birth rate increased to over 27. From the end of the baby boom until the late 1970s the population decreases rapidly again, before the rate of decline then slows. Since 1975, the crude birth rate of Canada will have dropped from 15.6, to it's lowest point in 2020, where it is expected to be just 10.5 births per thousand people.
