Society at a Glance: Asia/Pacific 2014

This is the third edition of Society at a Glance Asia/Pacific, a regularly updated OECD overview of social indicators, which addresses the growing demand for quantitative evidence on social well-being and its trends. This report starts with an introductory chapter providing a guide to help readers understanding the OECD Social Indicator framework. Chapters 2 and three are special thematic chapters to address two increasingly topical issues in the social debate: Gender Equality in Education, Employment and Entrepreneurship and Social Protection Expenditure.

Hide / Show Abstract

The total fertility rate (TFR) gives an indication of the number of children an average woman will have in her lifetime.The size of the population remains stable if the total fertility rate is a little over two, allowing for some mortality during infancy and childhood. This so-called replacement rate is around 2.1 children per women for industrialised countries but it may be higher for poorer countries.
