Births and deaths

In 2016 Strathmore - Strathmore Heights is forecast to have the highest fertility rate of 2.08 (births per woman), this is expected to remain stable with a rate of 2.08 in 2036.

The number of births in the City of Moonee Valley are derived by multiplying age specific fertility rates of women aged 15-49 by the female population in these age groups for all years during the forecast period.

Birth rates are especially influential in determining the number of children in an area, with most inner urban areas having relatively low birth rates, compared to outer suburban or rural and regional areas. Birth rates have been changing, with a greater share of women bearing children at older ages or not at all, with overall increases in fertility rates. This can have a large impact on the future population profile.
