Output

Standard output

Number of children born alive

If the number of live births is ten or more, the output variable is ten or more children, otherwise the output variable is the same as the input variable.

The standard output variable categories are the same as the classification categories. The residual categories may be output separately or combined; this means that the residual output categories may differ from the residual input categories. Where a combination item of residuals is to be used in output, this item should be labelled not elsewhere included and should have a footnote indicating its composition.

The full classification is available in the 'Available Files' section on the main page.

Other fertility measures

The other fertility measures defined in the definitions section of this standard may be output in several ways. The output of these fertility measures are subject to best practice at the time.

Some fertility measures may simply be output as a count, for example, live births registered annually.

Other fertility measures may be output as an annual rate in which a numerator is divided by a denominator, for example, the crude birth rate is the number of live births (numerator) divided by the mean population (denominator).

The measures may also be cross-tabulated by other variables, for example, child or mother's ethnicity, child or mother's Mäori descent, mother's age or nuptiality.
