ABSTRACT - All changes in annual fertility rates should not be taken as changes in completed fertility level, as some of the changes in annual rates may be due to the changes in the structures of the population. Annual rates may be affected by intrinsic limitations as well as by limitations due to incomplete coverage and inaccuracy of the relevant data. Problems leading to systematic errors in fertility rates are discussed in some detail.
