Statistical ReportsKorea’s Total Fertility Rate was 1.05 in 2017

According to the Vital Statistics by Statistics Korea on the crude birth rate(‰)* and total fertility rate** from 2000 to 2016, the crude birth rate which is the number of live births occurring among the population during a given year, per 1,000 mid-year total population during the same year was 7.0 as of 2017. This figure was significantly reduced from 11.7 in 2001, the lowest compared to 9.0 in 2005, 9.4 in 2010, and 8.6 in 2015. The crude birth rate for 2017 was 0.9 less compared to 7.9 in 2016.
As the fertility rate of those in the age group who are active in childbirth has been showing a relatively large decrease, policy considerations should be taken to ensure that the birth timing is not too late.
As of 2010, the fertility rate for those aged 25 to 29 was 79.7, which has a relatively wide gap with 47.9 in 2017. The fertility rate of people aged 30 to 34 also decreased significantly from 112.4 in 2010 to 97.7. On the other hand, when it comes to the rate between the ages of 35 and 39, the number of births increased from 32.6 in 2010 to 47.2 in 2017. The fertility rate for those aged 40 to 44 rose as well from 4.1 to 6.
As the fertility rate of those in the age group who are active in childbirth has been showing a relatively large decrease, policy considerations should be taken to ensure that the birth timing is not too late.
