Liverpool City

Births and deaths

In 2017, Wattle Grove is estimated to have the highest fertility rate of 2.12 (births per woman), this is expected to increase to 2.15 in 2041.

The number of births in Liverpool City 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.

Death rates

The forecast number of deaths in Liverpool City is a reflection of death rates assumed for small areas. For historical years, this will equal the number of deaths published by the ABS, where this information was available at the time of forecasting. These rates are based on historical estimates for Liverpool City, which have been extrapolated into the future, assuming an increase in expectation of life in all age groups (except 85 years and over).
