The mean age of women at childbirth is the mean age of women when their children are born. For a given calendar year, the mean age of women at childbearing is calculated using the fertility rates by age (between 15 and 49 years of age). The mean age is not influenced by a specific population structure (number of mothers in each age group) and is therefore better for geographical and temporal comparisons.
The data for Catalonia have been calculated using population estimates and figures on Births Statistics. From 2012 onwards, the data is reported annually in two phases: the provisional data, based on events concerning residents registered with civil registries of Catalonia, and the definitive data, with events concerning all residents (including those registered with civil registries in other autonomous communities).
