Fertility rate Question - simple for an expert!

Discussion in 'Geography' started by ururie, Feb 16, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    Can anyone answer this short and perhaps easy question.
    We just starting the IB syllabus and a definitions sheet gives two definitions for fertility rate.

    General fertility rate
    and
    Total fertility rate

    It gives definitions on the IB scheme but they are both more or less the same.

    Could anyone explain the difference?
    Or are they interchangeable?

    any help would be gratefully received!
