Standardized fertility rate
Indirect standardized fertility rate:
Fertility rate of a region, calculated in such way that regions become comparable.
Indirect standardization equates the age distribution of women of childbearing age (15 to 50 years) in a region with that of the Caribbean Netherlands as a whole. This eliminates the effects of, for example, a relatively large number of women of the most fertile or least fertile age. The standardized figure makes it easier to compare regions.

Calculated as the year of birth of the child minus the year of birth of the mother.
