Methodological notes

Data for 1785-1899 cover the historical territory of Bohemia, Moravia and the Czech part of Silesia. For 1800, 1807 and 1815 data for Moravia and Silesia are estimated. Since 1900 the data are recalculated for the current territory of the Czech Republic.

Total fertility rate is the average number of children that would be born alive to a woman provided that age-specific fertility rates of a given year remain unchanged during her childbearing period (age 15-49). Analogically, gross reproduction rate is the average number of live born girls per one woman. Net reproduction rate is the average number of live born girls per one woman who will survive until the age of her mother at the time of childbirth. Figures for 1945 and 1946 exclude German population. Total fertility rate for 1900 and 1910 is taken from Srb, Kučera (1959) as two-years estimates of 1900-01 and 1910-11 periods.

Mean age of mothers and mean age at first childbirth is computed from age-specific fertility rates. Mean age at first childbirth 1925-1937 and 1949-1959 was computed from fertility rates of all births (live births plus still births). Mean age of mothers in 1920-1948 was computed from 5-years fertility rates. Figures for 1938-1944 are computed from 5-years fertility rates on the area of Bohemia and Moravia excluding annexed areas.

Premarital conceptions are computed as a percentage of marital children of first order born until eight months since wedding from all first marital children.

Total abortion rate is the average number of abortions per woman assuming that age-specific abortion rates of a given year remain unchanged during her reproductive period (age 15-49).

Life expectancy at birth indicates the expected remaining life duration of live born person provided the unchangeable mortality conditions of a given year. Life expectancy at birth for 1830-1910 is taken as estimates of periods 1830-38, 1839-47, 1850, 1860 from Srb (2004) and the sources quoted therein, and as estimates of periods 1869-70, 1880-81, 1890-91, 1900-01 and 1910-11 from Srb, Kučera (1959).

Total divorce rate represents the percentage of marriages terminated by divorce provided that the marriage-duration-specific rates of given year (for 1928-30 and 1931-33 three-year period) remain unchanged.

Total first marriage rate and the mean age at first marriage come from nuptiality tables. Total first marriage rate states the share (in %) of people who enter into the first marriage until they reach age of 50 provided the unchangeable nuptiality, mortality and migration conditions of a given year.

Late foetal mortality represents the number of stillbirths per 1,000 total births. Infant mortality rate represents the number of deaths until 1 year of age per 1,000 live births. Neonatal mortality represents the number of deaths until 28 days since the day of birth per 1,000 live births.
