In 2020, the total fertility rate in Ecuador decreased by 0.04 children per woman (-1.91 percent) since 2019. The fertility rate thereby reached its lowest value in recent years. Notably, the fertility rate is continuously decreasing over the last years.
The total fertility rate is the average number of children that a woman of childbearing age (generally considered 15 to 44 years) is expected to have throughout her reproductive years. Unlike birth rates, which are based on the actual number of live births in a given population, fertility rates are estimates (similar to life expectancy) that apply to a hypothetical woman, as they assume that current patterns in age-specific fertility will remain constant throughout her reproductive years.
