General Fertility Rate = the number of resident live births per 1,000 females aged 15-44 years.          
Total Fertility Rate = age-specific birth rates of women in five-year age groups multiplied by five and summed to form a total for all ages. This rate yields the number of children a cohort of 1,000 women would bear if they experienced the existing age-specific rates throughout their childbearing years.          
Age-Specific Birth Rate = the number of resident live births to females in a specific age group per 1,000 females in the age group.
