Countries by birth rate in 2008

This article includes two versions of the list of countries by crude birth rate. Crude birth rate refers to the number of births over a given period divided by the person-years lived by the population over that period. It is expressed as number of births per 1,000 population.

The first list is based on the United Nations Population Division's quinquennial estimates and projections[1][2]. Figures are for the period 2005-2010 using the medium assumption. The average crude birth rate for the entire world is estimated to be 20.3 births per 1,000 population.

The second list is based on CIA World Factbook estimates for year 2008.[3] Dependent territories and not fully recognized states are not ranked.
