Number of births

Definition: 

Number of births registered in the Republic of Latvia during a year, if at least one of the parents is a permanent resident of the Republic of Latvia.

Starting from 2000 the number of births has been recalculated including also children born outside Latvia to mother (permanent resident of Latvia) temporarily being abroad. In compliance with the methodology of the Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat) these children should also be included in the number of children born in Latvia.
