Sub-Saharan Africa Compared by Health > Birth rate > Crude > Per 1,000 people

DEFINITION: Crude birth rate indicates the number of live births occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear. Subtracting the crude death rate from the crude birth rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the population growth rate in the absence of migration.
