Monthly estimates of births

The purpose is to estimate the number of births since July 2020 (data for the first semester have already been published provisionally) and to give a comparison with the historical data since 2016. This allows the number to be interpreted using a temporal perspective, given the ever-present variability and the gradual decrease observed in the number of births in recent years.

Three types of data will thus coexist in the project:

  • Definitive data (births from 2016 to 2019))
  • Provisional data (initially, the first half of 2020)
  • Estimated data (as of July 2020)

Updated birth estimates will be published during the first fortnight of each month m, covering up to the entire month m-2.
