CAPITAL CITY MAPS - TOTAL FERTILITY RATES


The following maps of Australian capital cities by Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) illustrate areas of higher and lower fertility. Regions classified as "Not applicable" either have no usual resident population (such as industrial zones and National Parks) or, have too few usual residents contributing to fertility rates and data is not published for that SA2 in 2016. For more information see the data cube TABLE 2: Births, Summary, Statistical Areas Level 2 - 2006 to 2016 from the Downloads tab.
