The total fertility rate in Laos saw no significant changes in 2020 in comparison to the previous year 2019 and remained at around 2.54 children per woman. But still, the fertility rate reached its lowest value of the observation period in 2020.
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.
