Total fertility rate of Argentina 1865-2020

In 1865, the total fertility rate of Argentina was 6.8 children per woman, meaning that the average woman born in Argentina in this time could expect to have just under seven children over the course of her reproductive years. Fertility in Argentina would decline gradually in the second half of the 19 th century, as the country would see a rising influx of European immigration and the liberalization of several sectors of the country’s economy. As Argentina would enter the first half of the 20 th century, fertility declined more rapidly as the country became increasingly urbanized. As a result, fertility would fall from six children at the beginning of the century, to just over three children by the 1940s. However, fertility would largely level off at this rate for the next three decades, seeing little change under the military junta which took power in the years following the Second World War. While fertility would see a brief rise in the late 1970s, coinciding with the end of the military government, continuing modernization and increased access to contraception would drive fertility down once more, continuing steadily into the 21st century. As a result, in 2020, it is estimated that the average woman born in Argentina can expect to have just over two children over the course of her reproductive years, which is below replacement level.
