Human Fertility Collection

The Human Fertility Collection (HFC) is a collection of age-specific fertility rates for a multitude of populations covering many years. The HFC has been designed to supplement the Human Fertility Database (HFD) and to incorporate data that are valuable for fertility research but do not meet the standards of the HFD. The collection features fertility estimates from diverse data sources, including survey data and data reconstructions. Therefore, users must be cautious about the potential limits of comparability and reliability of HFC data when using them for their research.
