Note: All rates for the period 1992 to 2012 have been revised to reflect revisions in the Estimated Resident Population (ERP) due to rebasing and recasting following the 2011 Census. Data have been revised to include previously unprocessed NSW birth registrations for the period 2005 to 2010. Rates from 1992 to 2001 have been calculated by the Queensland Government Statistician's Office using unpublished births unit record data. Fertility rates for 2013 have been calculated by the ABS using preliminary 30 June 2013 estimated resident population.
(a) The number of live births during the calendar year, according to the age of the mother, per 1,000 of the female resident population of the same age at 30 June. 
(b) The sum of age–specific fertility rates per woman.  It represents the number of children a woman would bear during her lifetime if she experienced current age-specific fertility rates at each age of her reproductive life.
(c) In the calculation of these rates, births to mothers aged under 15 years are included in the 15–19 age group.
(d) In the calculation of these rates, births to mothers aged 50 years and over are included in the 45–49 age group.
