About the book
This edition of the Demographic Observatory presents a series of fertility indicators estimated and projected by five-year periods. The indicators were formulated as input for the national population estimates and projections for the 20 countries of Latin America for the period 1950-2050. The figures in this publication constitute a revision of those presented in No. 68 of the Demographic Bulletin of July 2001. The Demographic Observatory features an analytical chapter that offers a general overview of the information presented, accompanied by 37 tables. The CD-ROM features the same tables as the print version, as well as information on estimations and projections for the total, urban, and economically active population.
