Summary 

The Global Burden of Disease Study 2019 (GBD 2019), coordinated by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), estimated the burden of diseases, injuries, and risk factors for 204 countries and territories and selected subnational locations.

This dataset provides annual estimates for age-specific fertility rate (ASFR), total fertility fate (TFR), total fertility under 25 years (TFU25), net reproductive rate (NRR), live births, and crude birth rate for 1950-2019. Data sources used to produce the ASFR estimates came from 8078 location-years of vital registration data, and 439 complete birth histories and 628 summary birth histories from 938 surveys, 349 censuses, and 238 other sources.
